The Sanibel Sea School will offer a variety of limited in-person offerings for children, families and small groups this fall, including after-school sessions, family private programs and customized home-school sessions.

To ensure the safety of participants, staff and the community, staff will continue to conduct health screenings, wear masks and ensure proper sanitation of all classroom spaces and gear.

“Safety is our number one priority and we’re committed to keeping families safe while we explore the ocean,” Director Nicole Finnicum said.

Beginning mid-September and continuing through mid-December, the after-school sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and include surfing, seining and snorkeling, and ocean art. Sessions are $20 per student. Registration is open at www.sanibelseaschool.org/afterschool.

Educators are also offering customized Homeschool at Sea programming, which is hands-on, supplemental science-based education targeted to small homeschool groups. Educators can arrange a series of sessions that are focused on marine biology or lessons that compliment student’s existing homeschool or virtual school curriculum.

In addition, the Sanibel Sea School is offering family shore-based and paddle-based private sessions.

“We understand the importance of sticking close to family this year, so our private sessions are a perfect activity to get out of the house and spend time in nature together,” Finnicum said.

For more information on the Homeschool at Sea and private programs, contact 239-472-8585 or info@sanibelseaschool.org. Scholarships are available.

Part of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation family, the Sanibel Sea School’s mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.
