Booking MarineLab Programs

 

We are now taking reservations for 2015 and 2016! Please call us at (800) 741-1139 to make a reservation. We will then determine the number of BOATS you will need to accommodate your group. No deposit is needed when you make your reservation; we will put you on the calendar and send you a confirmation packet with a deposit due date.

Since our programs are almost exclusively conducted aboard our Coast Guard inspected vessels, we book in "boats". You can learn more about how many boats you'll need here and about our required deposits here. We have limited availability for our "Big Boat" which is booked by single schools only that are expecting no more than 18 students and 2 chaperones.

Check the calendar below to see what dates are available, and then either call us at 800-741-1139 or fill in the form to the right.

Please read the bars to see the numbers of boats available. If it says AVAILABLE, that means all boats are available.

The calendar has been UPDATED as of SEPTEMBER 1, 2015.

How much will I need to deposit? (snorkel programs only)

Your program fee and required deposit will be shown on the front page of your confirmation packet as well. These are examples of the TOTAL DEPOSIT REQUIRED to help you plan. The deposit is calculated as 30% of the snorkeling program fee per student multiplied by 9 students per boat. Check out our 2015 deposit calculator or our 2016 deposit calculator too!
