Summer sun, sand, sea, and science!

At the Ocean Institute, we seek to inspire the love of science and discovery in students of all ages. Our laboratories, aquariums, research and maritime vessels, outdoor education facilities, and new Maddie James Seaside Learning Center are all designed for hands-on exploration, encouraging curiosity and experimentation.

Come and spend a week or two in our world this summer! Explore the edge of the intertidal zone, marvel at the amazing world of microscopic sea life, become friends with an octopus, and sail away to sea aboard the R/V Sea Explorer and the Spirit of Dana Point. Learn about the worlds of whales and moon jellies, sea stars and leopard sharks as you connect with nature and dive into fun!
