Sanibel Sea School educators just wrapped up four weeks of their first after-school programming session, “After-School Surfing.” Participants met for hands-on surfing sessions with the school’s marine science educators. From learning paddling techniques to popping up on the board, students honed their skills, made some new friends and had lots of fun in the ocean.

The Sanibel Sea School was able to safely offer after-school surfing by limiting class sizes to nine participants, incorporating social distancing and spending the entire session outdoors.

Next up in the Sanibel Sea School’s after-school lineup is After-School Seining and Snorkeling. Participants will head out to the bay for an afternoon of ocean discovery to learn more about the local estuary. Using seine nets and dip nets, they get a hands-on look at the creatures that inhabit the vast seagrass beds and learn or hone their snorkeling skills.

Starting in November, after-school participants will have the opportunity to get more creative with After-School Ocean Art. Using natural materials found outside or on the beach, the Sanibel Sea School educators will help participants create natural works of art, just in time for the holidays. Registration remains open with a few spaces remaining.
