Life at Sea
When aboard the ship, students rotate through a day-and-night “watch” schedule. You will learn the basics of sail handling, engine room operations, chart plotting, celestial navigation, and all other aspects of sailing a tall ship. Busy as things are, there is still enough free time to keep a journal, read a novel, climb aloft to enjoy sunrises, play card games, and look out for whales, dolphins, and sharks! Meals are provided. Students will sleep in communal/co-ed bunk rooms aboard the ship.

All students are welcome to participate. No sailing experience or advanced science courses are necessary, just a desire to learn and a passion for STEM.

Cost & Travel Logistics
The total cost of this program is $900 per student. This reduced rate is in part due to contributions by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Cost of travel is not included. Students are responsible for booking their flight into Miami and out of Charleston. Students are also responsible for coordinating their own travel to the ship from the airport in Miami, and from the ship to the airport in Charleston.
