Ocean Experiences are for Everyone

There are thousands of children in our region who, despite living just miles from the coast, rarely have a chance to interact with the ocean in a meaningful way. 

At Sanibel Sea School, we have a commitment to those who otherwise wouldn't experience the ocean. Currently, we have partnerships with the Gladiolus Learning and Development Center, the PACE Center for Girls, the Pine Manor Improvement Association, Child Care of Southwest Florida, and numerous schools in Lee and Hendry Counties to offer unique outdoor learning experiences to local underprivileged children. Once a month or more, we meet with kids from these organizations to help them build confidence and gain an appreciation for science while exploring Sanibel’s diverse barrier island habitats with us.

Sanibel Sea School also offers tuition assistance to many island families throughout the year, whose children would otherwise be unable to attend summer camps and other programs. If you are concerned that your child may not be able to participate in one of our programs due to cost, please contact us for more information.
