In the wake of Hurricane Ian, Sanibel Sea School’s main campus is temporarily closed for some much-needed repairs.

Until we re-open the main campus, we will offer limited programming at alternate locations. Weekly camps, beach walks, and private family programs are currently available.

Please continue to check our website, follow us on social media, or sign up for our email list here to receive updates.

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.


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


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


We’ve partnered with local hotels and resorts to offer unique, on-property ocean learning experiences. Find out what’s happening right outside your door while you’re in town.  



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. At Sanibel Sea School, we are working hard to change that.


We are proud to be rated #1 in our TripAdvisor category!
