MEET OUR FLEET
Your students can enjoy a floating classroom aboard any of our three U.S. Coast Guard-certified Small Passenger Vessels. Though each vessel is different, combined, our fleet is equipped with plankton nets and student microscopes for our “Plankton TV,” trawl nets, water quality testing tools, touch tanks and everything needed for an up-close experience with the Bay.
Our entire fleet is custom-built to meet or exceed rigid U.S.C.G. regulations for strength, stability, rail height and engineering. Each vessel is inspected annually by U.S.C.G. personnel for seaworthiness, safety equipment and crew training. Our captains are licensed by the U.S.C.G. to operate small passenger vessels after a rigorous course, testing and experience, and our crew perform drills quarterly. All students wear life jackets while onboard our vessels.
