Living History Adventure
Average trip length: 40 hours
Join us as we travel back in time to experience life leading up to the Revolutionary War. Board the Star of India or Californian ship in San Diego and experience life as a mariner. Students and chaperones are split into crews that work together to complete their assigned jobs. Cleaning, cooking, rowing, and keeping an eye out for pirates, your students will love this experience!
After breakfast aboard the ship, we will head to the floating boat lab. Aboard a large fishing vessel, students will use an otter trawl net to pick-up slow-moving animals from the ocean floor. An on-board marine biologist will then sort through our findings and teach students about the awesome creatures found in the net. Weather permitting, we will venture outside the harbor in search of dolphins and migrating whales. Students will look under the microscope to learn about the many species of plankton found in just one drop of ocean water. We will also make a quick stop to view some California sea lions resting on floating docks before heading back to the marina. We will enjoy a pizza lunch on the beach before safely driving back to school.
