O'Neill Sea Odyssey provides a hands-on educational experience to encourage the protection and preservation of our living sea and communities.
O'Neill Sea Odyssey (OSO) engages 4th - 6th grade youth with 3-hour lessons in navigation, sailing, conservation, and marine science on a 65-foot catamaran sailing Monterey Bay, and in a shore-side education center. The program is free, and each group completes a community service project to participate. Our mission is to provide a hands-on educational experience to encourage the protection and preservation of our living sea and communities. OSO offers a stimulating environment in which students learn practical applications for the subject matter, including geography, mathematics, natural science, and conservation.
O'Neill Sea Odyssey has had a far-reaching and beneficial effect on our local communities. Since its inception, it has served more than 60,000 students. Not only has the interest of these students been stimulated in marine science and environmental conservation, they have also contributed directly to their community through their environmental community service projects.
Thank you for being a part of the dynamic and caring community that supports O'Neill Sea Odyssey's vision.
