Hop aboard Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s Pinellas County Schools authorized and Coast Guard certified water vessels for a two-hour adventure.  This can be customized and include snorkeling, as well as a narrated scenic tour by one of our staff members.

During the snorkeling, students can get close to many of the area’s intertidal animals in the protected waters of Clearwater Bay. Sea urchins, crabs, sea stars and snails are among the common finds. We customize this program to each age group – to ensure students are always within their depth. You will need to provide your own snorkeling gear, including closed-toe water shoes and towels.
