Day & Overnight Marine Science Field Trips

Nestled in the heart of the Florida Keys, and accessible by ferry boat, The Pigeon Key Foundation operates a Marine Science Center (PKFMSC) on its private five-acre island. The center gravitates towards hands-on learning, turning the island and surrounding ecosystem into the classroom.

Students are provided with a pivotal, one-of-a-kind experience that is invaluable to them the rest of their lives. PKFMSC only hosts one group at a time, allowing for an individualized experience targeted at your specific curriculum requirements.

For over 20 years, PKFMSC has provided private, customized programs to more than 30,000 participants from more than 1,000 schools throughout the United States. Programs are tailored for all ages—elementary school to post graduate—and are designed and endorsed by some of the most respected marine scientists in the United States.
