    9:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Minimum: 6 students               Cost: $510

    Wrap up summer by surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, and learning marine science.  Get a taste of sailing on the 23 foot Sonars and in Optis for part of a day, then use some of the skills you’ve learned from sailing and apply them to wind-surfing.  Take the first exciting step in learning to surf by practicing your stance, balance, paddle technique, and duck dives safely in the harbor.  Snorkel for underwater critters and learn about how these animals have adapted to their environments.  Use your observations of these animals to create your own creature and use biomimicry to create a product that could benefit all humans.
