Welcome to Ocean Classroom
We are an educational organization providing programs of sea education and adventure aboard traditional tall ship schooners. Ocean Classroom is a leader in experiential education, with award-winning programs sailing from the Canadian Maritimes to the Caribbean Sea. We strive to create programs aboard our ships in which our students grow stronger and more confident socially, intellectually, ethically and physically to take their places among the generations of exceptional men and women who have been transformed by seafaring life.
Join OCF for a summer of sailing!
There is still room left in our one-week Seafaring Camp, but there are now new dates! Join our professional crew from August 3rd-10th as they sail out of Camden, Maine on a traditional schooner to explore the marine environment of coastal New England and discover the sea's rich diversity of life, history, and lore all while honing your sailing skills. Seafaring camp offers an exciting and challenging experience for everyone, regardless of ability. Fill out an application today and sail with us this summer!
Proctor Academy & Ocean Classroom:
A Partnership 20 Years Strong
In late November of last year we concluded our 20th Ocean Semester with Proctor Academy–twenty years of safe, transformative, accredited education at sea–for almost 500 students who have sailed to the Caribbean and back, lived and learned aboard, shaped their lives, and made friends forever. Watch this 3:57 video of Proctor students describing their semester at sea aboard Ocean Classroom's traditional tall ships.
