Resort Partnerships

In addition to offering a variety of ocean learning experiences at our Flagship Campus on Sanibel’s East End, we have built partnerships with several hotels and resorts in our area to provide unique, on-property ocean learning opportunities to guests. Check below to see what’s happening right outside your door while you’re in town! 

If your resort does not offer our programs on-property, email us at to inquire about private programs and volunteer opportunities.  

Island Inn

Sanibel Island, FL

Discover Beachcombing – Guided walks weekly on Wednesdays

Sanibel Island offers world-class beachcombing, birding, and wildlife-watching opportunities. There is so much waiting to be discovered here! Join our knowledgeable marine science educators for a casual guided beach walk to explore what’s washed ashore. We will talk about some of the more mysterious objects we find on the beach, look for fascinating animals, and learn about shell biology. Your guide will happily answer any questions you might have along the way. No two beach walks are ever the same – the sea has a way of surprising us!

Time: 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM
