ENQUIRE

Welcome back King’s Christian Academy! 

On this school’s expedition, students will learn some essential knot-tying, dinghy driving,  the basics of sailing and sail trimming, as well as navigation.

They will learn about the work Sea Dragon does and the environmental issues facing the oceans, more specifically; plastics pollution, chemical pollution,  global warming and ocean acidification. through both mini-lectures and using the research equipment aboard Sea Dragon.

With free time for swimming, snorkeling, and beach exploration, this trip will give our budding sailors, scientists, ocean, and environmental ambassadors, swimmers, and adventurers a truly amazing experience to take off into the world in whatever role and capacity they chose to embark on in the future.

If you represent a school/College/University group and would like to do a trip like this, with us, get in touch and we can put together a bespoke expedition with you, for your students.
