Each Ocean Classroom can accomodate 30 students and 5 adults. The duration of each trip is around 4 hours. Some of this time takes place at our dock to explain the activities for the day. The remaining time is spent out at sea collecting samples and in the harbor going through the catch.
The Sea Star Ocean Classroom Director, Captain Joe Cacciola, recognizes the ongoing challenge in funding public school field trips. In order to do his part, Captain Joe has made a special public school multiple trip discount. When a public school schedules more than one Ocean Classroom field trip in a school year, the price of each trip is $650. This is a $100 discount off the normal $750 price.
