The Science Education at Sea (SEAS) program is conducted entirely on a boat! This program sails out of Cape May/Wildwood or Sandy Hook and educational activities aboard the vessel cover a broad range of subject areas including plankton, specimen collection, animal handling, horseshoe crabs and dolphins or crabbing. All SEAS programs are aligned to New Jersey Academic Standards and the North American Association for Environmental Education K-12 Guidelines for Learning, and are tailored to the needs of our visiting teachers and schools.
Grade Levels: 4th-12th grade
Time: The SEAS program is a 3 hour trip. The morning trip runs from 9:00AM to 12:00PM. The afternoon trip runs from 1:00PM to 4:00PM. These start times are flexible, so please contact us if there are time constraints.
Prices: $25/student. Smaller groups, please note the minimum charter rates below.
Cape May Wildwood groups smaller than 60 people will need to pay the charter minimum of $1500.00.
Sandy Hook groups smaller than 50 people will need to pay the charter minimum of $1250.00.
In either location, if your group is smaller than the required number of people, there is a great chance we can join your group with another group. Please contact us for details.
