Self-Guided Student Groups

Self-guided visits are available for school or camp groups of grade-level students that want more flexibility during their visit. Groups can schedule to come as a "self-guided” group to attend our daily public educational programs and explore Florida OceanographicCoastal Center at their leisure.

Groups of 15 or more that pre-schedule to do a self-guided visit are given a group rate, which allows students over the age of 12, as well as chaperones, to pay our normal children’s admission rate. Groups arriving with less than 15 people (students and chaperones combined) will pay regular admission rates. Self-Guided Group visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. For information on our guided educational field trip options, please click here: School Group Programs

Self-guided groups can download and print "Self-Guided Exploration Sheets” found below. These will help the chaperones lead the students through the facility and benefit mixed age groups as the sheets are tailored to each age range. Group policies still apply. 

 

Groups are always welcome at Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, but the Self-guided Group pricing is limited per day and not available on weekends or certain blackout periods. Call for availability.
