EDUCATION & RESEARCH

Project Oceanology is a non-profit education and research facility dedicated to nurturing student and public interest and enthusiasm for marine sciences.

Our internationally recognized 4th through 12th grade education programs feature an inquiry-oriented approach to marine sciences. In addition, we proudly offer Boy and Girl Scouts of America affiliate programs, and summer enrichment overnight and day camps for students.

Project Oceanology’s seasonal Oceanographic Research Cruises and Seal Watch Cruises are unique educational outings for the entire family, with a fun twist. Our marine educators and marine biologists engage, entertain, and explore Long Island Sound’s diverse marine life with families aboard the 52-foot  Enviro-Lab II or 65-foot Enviro-Lab III research vessels.
