Welcome to OceansWide!

We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to put students and scientists together at sea in the Gulf of Maine. Our team is made up of a dedicated group of scientists, teachers and marine professionals who believe it is important to educate the students of Maine about the amazing and mysterious world that exists offshore. We are excited about having students work with scientists to determine research goals, participate in the actual at-sea research, and write reports on their findings. All of this happens while getting wet on the deck of our research ship.
