Admission and Program Costs
While on a study trip your students will participate in a standards-based lesson and be led on a tour of the facility where they will get to have up-close encounters with animals and even touch a sting ray or shark. Students will most likely also get to do a scavenger hunt and explore the refuge trails depending on which program is chosen. Please click on your specific program to get your detailed schedule of your day.
Free Transportation Provided by the Port of San Diego (Requirements)

Frequently Asked Questions
How many chaperones can I bring?
We leave the answer to this question up to each teacher. We feel like you know your class best and the right number of chaperones to bring. Each chaperone has to pay the $10 but teachers are free. We encourage you to bring at least 2-3 other adults with your group but we do ask that the chaperones do not bring siblings. We want the chaperones to be able to have their full attention on your students and the program.
There are two ways to have your chaperones pay. You can collect their money and pay for them along with your students when you arrive. You may also have them pay for themselves. If you choose this option, we ask that you bring all the adults that need to pay with you when you pay for your students. This really is important as it is very difficult for our front desk staff to have to track down who has and has not paid from each group.
Please note: Chaperones arriving by personal car must wait in the Living Coast lot until the shuttle or school bus picks them up!
