Sanibel Sea School was recently awarded first place in its TripAdvisor category for Sanibel Island. Listed under Classes and Workshops, the 501c3 nonprofit organization currently has 218 five-star reviews from past clients, and its educational ocean experiences for kids and families are a favorite activity among visitors to our area. TripAdvisor provided Sanibel Sea School with an engraved plaque to commemorate the occasion. 

“The Sanibel Sea School is an awesome place for experiential learning for people of all ages. Our whole family enjoys the shell walks, and our two sons love going to the kids’ classes,” wrote one reviewer. “The instructors have all been super knowledgeable as well as friendly and fun. This school is a special place, and we are so fortunate to have it here on the island. It truly is a world-class place to learn about ecology.” Many TripAdvisor reviewers also commented on summer camps, and wrote about the memorable, field-based experiences their families enjoyed together at Sanibel Sea School. Seining for seahorses, surfing, and the organization’s private land and boat-based programs were mentioned frequently as highlights. 

"We're so grateful for every single review our clients have written for us," said Executive Director Dr. Bruce Neill. "I am very proud of our team for going above and beyond to make sure every student has an outstanding, meaningful experience." Sanibel Sea School's mission is to improve the ocean's future, one person at a time. The organization offers a variety of field-based programs for children, families, and adults to choose from throughout the year.
