For Teachers

Maritime Gloucester is a great place to connect your students to the ocean!

Maritime Gloucester is a great place to connect your students to the ocean and Gloucester’s rich cultural heritage. We offer a wide variety of field trip programming year round for students from Pre-K through college at our harborfront campus in Gloucester, MA. Seasonally, we provide field study programs at local coastal habitat areas and on historic Gloucester Harbor aboard our fully equipped vessel the Schooner Ardelle. All of our programming units are designed around hands-on, place based activities and are linked directly to the K-12 Massachusetts State STEM and History Frameworks. With our new aquarium, there are great opportunities to learn about the marine species of the Gulf of Maine, water quality and ocean health, and the diverse array of marine habitats.
