The Bonne Bay area provides unique opportunities to learn marine science due to unequaled diversity of habitats, marine plants, fish and invertebrates. This diversity cannot be matched anywhere else in northeastern North America. Courses are designed to utilize the natural laboratories of the ocean and adjacent lands. You can expect to spend a great deal of time outdoors and in small boats. Lectures provide all necessary theoretical frameworks. Students typically live on site in our comfortable residence.

Students use small boats to access various habitats, to learn sampling techniques and to develop practical skills. Students are encouraged to use small boats to increase their experience as safe boat handlers. We provide basic theoretical and practical boating instruction so that students meet Canadian Coast Guard standards.
