Welcome to our online registration system for in-person field trips at the Sea Center.

All field trips at the Sea Center include:

An NGSS-aligned, interactive Sea Center field trip program delivered outside on Stearns Wharf - right above the sea!


A lower-level Sea Center Tour, where students will get a chance to view, touch, and learn about local marine life and environments up-close, with guiding questions tied to their grade-specific program


An exclusive upper-level Sea Center Scavenger Hunt

All field trips include a “Seaside Snack-Time" within our program area on the Wharf, during which students can stretch their legs, use the restroom, and enjoy a light snack, if they brought one.
