“Solid 3 Hours of fun and learning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

My 9 year old went to Sanibel Sea School for 3 hours of "Seagrass" education. He had a blast! He was able to catch puffer fish, file fish, seahorse and more. He was in very good hands. The price was right. Bring a towel, sunscreen and a water bottle (not plastic!!).

“Little girl has big smile after cuddle fish week!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Our almost 6 year-old daughter attended Sea School for the first time during cuddle fish week. She might be lacking in front teeth, but she was all smiles! She was so excited to surf, snorkel, swing on the rope swing, play in the sand, and learn about marine life. The counselors (many of whom were in high school), were so impressive. They were a mature, professional, and dedicated group, and they really dealt well with the little kids. The operation is run so smoothly and parents can be totally confident and assured that the kids are in great hands while at Sea School. This program is a gem and any child who attends is lucky, indeed.

Cuddle Fish Week is always a staff favorite - we love helping the little ones get comfortable in the water for a lifetime of ocean enjoyment. We're so glad your family had a good experience. Thank you so much for your review!

“Best Day Ever in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

My 7 year old daughter participated in the Crabs class on June 12th. We have been bringing her to Sanibel since she was born and after the class she stated, "This was my best day ever in Florida." Later that evening she took us back to Bunche Beach to explain everything they learned during the day. I am an Elementary School Principal, and I was very impressed with the my daughter's experience at the camp. Highly recommend!

dmac,

I am so glad that your daughter had a great time with us last week. Bunche beach is a really super environment in which to teach people about the ocean. I hope you can come back again and discover the ocean with us.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to review us and please enjoy the ocean at every opportunity.

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Our 10 year old loved this experience. We only did a 1/2 day session, as we were unsure of our child's enthusiasm for school on vacation. By the time we picked him up, he decided he wanted to attend another session. The staff is friendly & knowledgeable.

“Voted Awesome by the Kids!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Our daughter (9) and niece (7) were not sure if they would like the Wave class. They not only LOVED it but immediately wanted to sign up for the Crab class two days later. The girls didn't stop talking all the way back to our vacation home, we almost couldn't get a word in to ask about it, they were so excited. We would recommend the Sanibel Sea School to anyone. Our girls would especially like to thank Miss Julia, they said she was the most awesome teacher EVER.
