The Sea Education Association (S.E.A.) is headquartered in Woods Hole, and docks it’s East Coast vessel known as the Corwith Cramer right in Woods Hole Harbor. The Corwith Cramer is an ocean-going vessel that serves as a classroom for students in both high school and college who participate in S.E.A.’s unique curriculum. The S.E.A. campus in Woods Hole serves as the training ground for students who spend weeks here before heading out to sea.
In summertime, the Corwith Cramer is often in port in Woods Hole, loading and unloading students. Affiliated with Boston University, the S.E.A. program offers courses and credits in nautical science, maritime history, oceanography and more. Students are typically on the boat for a semester, and destinations include St. Croix, Cork and Tahiti.
Students are enthusiastic about what the semester at S.E.A. brings to them — clarity about their future, teamwork and life long friends, and even jump-starting careers in ocean science, marine biology and more. For future Jacques Cousteau, this is the place to start.
National Geographic explorer and world famous scientist Sylvia Earle says: “There is no better way, in my opinion, to learn about the planet’s oceans than to do a S.E.A. Semester. There are more comfortable and less challenging ways, but there is no better way. The oceans need you. They need you to study them and explore and cherish them. I can’t think of a more fascinating or exciting area to be working in today than in the marine environment.”
Locals appreciate the chance to see a real schooner in port, and tourists stop in their tracks to grab photos of all the sails aloft. Kudos to S.E.A. for keeping the Corwith Cramer in Woods Hole.
