Launched in 1991 as the school ship for Ocean Navigator Magazine,Ocean Star now sails under the banner of Sea-mester programs as a college level semester voyage. Sea-mester programs offer 20,40 and 80-day semesters aboard that are based on principles of experiential and adventure education. Learning through interaction and practical activities,the primary academic foci of oceanography, marine science, communication, and leadership skills development are brought from the textbook into real-life application. Under the guidance of professional staff, our students earn college credits for both academic and vocational activities, while piloting Ocean Star throughout the islands of Lesser Antilles. No experience is necessary. Programs are available to high school seniors, high school graduates, and college-aged students.
