Sanibel Sea School is dedicated to vibrantly teaching children and adults about marine ecosystems. We use barrier island habitats of Sanibel and Captiva to give our students an opportunity to touch, feel, and understand their surroundings.Thanks to the nature of field education, we provide a rich ocean experience that will invigorate students for a lifetime of appreciation and responsibility.We offer transformative education. It's more than an experience--it changes the way we live.
