The Sea Star Ocean Classroom program enables students to examine physical ocean properties as well as living organisms.  While aboard, students will examine the various ecosystems found in the Oceanside area and become aware of human impacts on them. Through the Ocean Classroom experience, students gain exposure to exciting marine career possibilities, learn about the scientific method and oceanographic research and also develop a lasting appreciation for our precious coastal environment.

The 60-foot Sea Star has been custom outfitted with real Oceanographic equipment and scientific instruments to provide our student explorers with an authentic interactive introduction to the marine sciences.
