Bring Your Students for the Most Stimulating Learning Experience Possible

Our field trips feature three activities:

  • On the way out, we drag our plankton net.  We then let you use our microscopes to view the tiny Zooplankton
  • The second activity is the shrimp net drag.  The boat is equipped with a built-in touch tank aquarium.  After dragging our shrimp net, we empty our catch into the touch tank for you to see!  The deckhand carefully removes any dangerous organisms, and allows you to see and touch certain species
  • Our final activity is simply observing various local wildlife.  We often see dolphins when we drag our shrimp net!  We also see lots of sea gulls, brown pelicans, and other birds




  • Times vary – 1 ½ hours
  • $9.00 per person for students and
  • chaperones, Teachers ride for free

Our minimum is $200 per field trip.  So, for groups of less than 24 people, the price will be $200 divided by the number of passengers.

Remember: Bring  your food and drinks in a cooler!
