Zeke’s Island Kayak Field Trip

Marine Education Field Trips

We now host marine education field trips to Zeke’s Island! This trip can include a variety of activities such as trails, kayaking, and hands-on learning experiences. Either on or off the water, students have a chance to embrace nature with guided lessons on marine ecosystems, environmental awareness, local island history, and wildlife! The full trip is 3-4 hours but all topics and times can be customized to fit class needs. Nearby is the Fort Fisher Aquarium that could be a great addition for a full marine science experience. Come adventure with us!
