Sanibel Sea School offers camps and activities for kids, families, and adults on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Explore the ocean with us through snorkeling, fishing, wading, surfing, and more!

This shouldn’t be called education. It’s about seeing, smelling, discovering, feeling and finally, because it’s time – learning. This kind of learning changes people’s lives.

We want every one of you to fall in love with the ocean. So let’s get our feet wet and make discoveries. We have half and full-day programs for kids at three locations year-round. If you're new to Sanibel Sea School and not sure where to start, click "Sanibel". 


Each week of the summer and select holidays, we offer camp. Swimming like dolphins, camping in the Keys to study coral reefs, or running around like a Calusa tribe – it’s always an adventure and every week has a different theme. So you’ll never be bored.


During the winter and spring months, Sanibel Sea School offers a variety of learning opportunities for adults. No matter which course you choose, you're sure to experience Sanibel in a whole new way!


Family outings, school field trips, corporate events and more! A day of discovery with us is sure leave you with ocean memories that will last a lifetime. Let us plan the perfect ocean adventure for your group.
