Marine Camps


The next Ocean Frontiers Marine Camp runs from the Tuesday 6th April - Friday 9th April 2021.

If your kids are ready for an adventure, you have just found it.  Always in a safe and controlled environment with our expert instructors. 

Our focus is always to keep the campers out on the boats and on and in the water to engage with the environment and see what they have learned from the class sessions in action. Each morning starts with a short academic session in the clubhouse and immediately followed by in-water activities from our dive and snorkel boats. This is repeated in the afternoon, with different topics and in-water activities to a different coral reef site or area.
 
The Ocean Frontiers' Marine Camp is suitable for students aged 10-17 years of age. 


The Campers will experience a selection of the following activities:-
 

  • Boat Skills - learn the ropes of crewing a boat with fun teamwork challenges.

All sessions are run by qualified marine biologists and experienced and certified boat captains. The campers have direct supervision from the moment we pick them up, throughout the day, in the water, out of the water, lunch time and until we drop them off and release them to a parent or authorized care-giver. All staff are trained in Rescue, First Aid and CPR. All vessels are inspected and certified by the Cayman Islands Port Authority.
