For adults, we provide SCUBA certification, drill instructor courses, MOB recovery courses, cold water survival courses and more.

Courses for Students

Maritime careers are stunning in their diversity, and Maine's educational institutions reflect that. The Ocean School and Maine Maritime Academy thrive, which is proof-positive that the water is brimming with opportunities that include fishing, aquaculture, science, surveying, biology, the passenger trade, and more. Our programs spark students' imaginations and encourage the self-reliance and safety-mindedness that make for great mariners, whether go on to find themselves on day trips or seasonal deployments.

With an opportunity to get a first hand look into the past, present, and future of the Gulf of Maine, we help young people become aware of the treasures they stand to inherit and the importance of protecting them.
