ALSO: Discovery Voyages aboard our 90′ research vessel on the San Francisco Bay
10 am, 1 pm, 3 pm (2-hr trip)
$20 single admission for ship voyage (must be at least 5yo, all children must be supervised)

Climb aboard our floating classroom, the 90' Research Vessel the Robert G. Brownlee, for an exploration of the San Francisco Bay like no other! After an introduction to this magical estuary, you can help us set a net to sample what fish are swimming through the waters below. We'll help you identify and even touch the fish we see... will we catch a shark, bat ray or any of over one hundred other surprising fish we've seen?? Then we pull up a bottom sample and see what all that mud has hidden inside. Last but not least, we'll peer into the world of plankton, the engine that drives the whole ecosystem!

ABOUT: Marine Science Institute

The Marine Science Institute's mission is to cultivate a responsibility for the natural environment and our human communities through interdisciplinary science education.

The Institute's philosophy is based on the idea that putting students in direct physical contact with their local bay environment will help cultivate their natural sense of curiosity, enrich their understanding of science, and foster a responsibility to protect the environment.

The Institute educates roughly 50,000 students and adults annually through all of its programs. It has become a leader in environmental education, and to this day stays true to its philosophy of inspiring respect and stewardship through experiential learning.
