F.I.N.SEA Foundation welcomes applications from accredited public schools in high needs districts of South Florida and Southern California to participate in experiential marine science adventures.  We are currently offering a wide array of fully funded, environmental science programs to accommodate groups of up to 30 students.  We are committed to getting your classroom to the ocean for a day of unforgettable learning adventures!  Join us as we snorkel coral reefs, kayak mangrove and kelp bed ecosystems, explore rocky intertidal zones, conduct exciting laboratory experiments, tour local marine aquaria, and swim with dolphins!  F.I.N.SEA Foundation will create a custom, educational experience for your group based on age, skill and comfort level, and knowledge of marine and environmental science topics.  All of our programs have a conservation focus and are facilitated by F.I.N.SEA Foundation Co-Founders/Directors, as well as experienced volunteers.  Please join us on our journey to bring joy and empowerment to students through experiential education and inspire them to become ambassadors of our oceans and environment.
