The Sea Education Association, or SEA, is a global teaching, learning and research community dedicated to the exploration, understanding and stewardship of marine and maritime environments. SEA empowers students with life-changing ocean voyages of scientific and cultural discovery, academic rigor and personal growth.
Located in the oceanographic research hub of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, SEA operates two 134-foot tall-ship ocean-research vessels, the SSV Corwith Cramer and the SSV Robert C. Seamans. These ships sail in the waters of the Caribbean, North Atlantic, and South Pacific, with regular port stops including Tahiti, Hawaii, New Zealand, St. Croix, Puerto Rico, and Dominica, to name just a few.
SEA offers semester and summer programs for college undergraduates, as well as programs for Gap Year students. In addition, there are summer programs, on shore or at sea, for high school students.
