Sanibel Sea School is excited to offer a variety of limited, in-person offerings for kids, families, and small groups this fall. Offerings include after school sessions, family private programs, and customized homeschool sessions.

To ensure safety of our participants, staff, and community, Sanibel Sea School 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,” said Director Nicole Finnicum.

After school programs begin mid-September and continue through mid-December. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and include surfing, seining and snorkeling, and ocean art. All after school sessions are $20 per student. Registration is open at

Sanibel Sea School educators are also offering customized Homeschool at Sea programming. Homeschool at Sea 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.

Finally, family shore-based and paddle-based private sessions are also offered throughout the fall by appointment.

“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,” said Finnicum.

Anyone who would like more information and pricing on private programs and Homeschool at Sea can call (239) 472-8585 or email Scholarships are available. Part of the SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) Family, Sanibel Sea School’s mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.
