Book a Program

In light of the current situation with COVID-19, we are changing our booking procedures until the pandemic situation resolves. If you are already booked with us over the summer, we have been in contact with your lead chaperone. Our campus is currently closed. Between May and September we will apply the following guidelines to our reservations. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL RESERVATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO FEDERAL, STATE, and LOCAL GUIDELINES AND RESTRICTIONS.

1. We will book only one school/group at a time
2. We will restrict groups to no more than 50 people total (half our capacity)
3. We will have 24 hours between groups to ensure that our facility is completely cleaned and disinfected

Reservation requests for 2021 are now being accepted for processing; please complete either the Word or PDF form and return it to coordinator@marinelab.org.

Decide if you want one of our snorkeling or non-snorkeling programs before you call, and visit our Program Components page to learn about the field trips and evening programs. If you already know what you want, you can use the form below. Spring months are usually booked about a year ahead, but it's always worth a call or email!

  • We book in boat groups of 9 students + 1 free chaperone.
  • We have one "BIG BOAT" that holds 14 - 18 students and 2 free chaperones.
  • If you are planning on bringing more chaperones, please note that the first additional chaperone PER GROUP is charged room and board, and all other chaperones must pay full price. Learn more about our parent chaperone policy.
  • Our maximum capacity is 90 students and 10 adults
  • Our busiest season is February - July, and we are often booked a year in advance
  • Deposits are not required to book a program - we set a deposit deadline for your first payment. Spring schools must send in a deposit by November 1 of the previous fall. Learn more about our deposit policy.
  • We are happy to customize your program for you, but we do require that our core curriculum is included!
