Field Trips at the Field Station!

Educate by the seashore, dive into the touch tanks, and have fun on a field trip at the Deep Bay Marine Field Station.

Our outstanding hands‐on programs incorporate a series of engaging and age appropriate activities that aim to inspire curiosity and increase understanding of our oceans. Classes are taught in the facility’s classroom by passionate science educators and volunteers. Many programs are available year‐round but some outdoor activities are subject to weather conditions and tides. Programs are designed to meet the new BC curriculum learning outcomes and can be customized to meet the goals and interests of each group.


Who can book a fieldtrip?

Our fieldtrips are intended for teachers and classrooms but speak with us if you have a group that is interested in a fieldtrip and we will work with you to book something special.

How much does it cost?

Each experience costs $100/ 1 hr for up to 30 students. We are only booking one program per class at a time due to facility and staff limitations. Please contact us if cost is a barrier.

How long is each program?

  • Indoor Programs are generally 60 minutes long
  • Field School Programs are generally 90 minutes long

We are happy to tailor program length to your classes needs. Please speak with us to customize your experience.
