This summer was our 8 year-old daughter's 3rd at Sanibel Sea School. She spent a total of 3 weeks in attendance (Cruising for Sand Dollars Week in June, Mighty Calusa Week in July, and Sneaky Octopus Week in August). Each was special and unique in its own way. She had so much fun participating in the regular and week-specific activities... More

They are having so much fun they have no idea they're actually learning a lot about our oceans and the creatures that inhabit our ocean environment. If... More

My children, now 7 and 10, attend every year and we travel to Sanibel to make this happen. The kids have so much fun snorkeling, surfing, swimming, arts & crafts, and cleaning up the beach they don't even know they are getting a world-class education in one of the most beautiful places in the US. Can't say enough about this... More

Our ten-year-old son was a little bored hanging with mom and dad on vacation so we signed him up for three half days of Sea School on Ospreys, Wrackline and urchins etc. He loved it. Had a great time and learned a lot. And we got a break too. Everyone was happy. He said he'd love to go back next... More

My son attended Sanibel Sea Camp last week and loved every minute of it. Doc Bruce, Nicole and the entire team take safety seriously, all while learning and having fun in the ocean! We will definitely be back!
