Choose a half-day, full-day, week-long or overnight program for your students. Day programs can accommodate up to 25 students and overnight program, 20 students.

Programs for Colleges and Universities

World Ocean School provides a platform for education, ideal for college J-term, spring break, or traveling break programs. We offer a platform for students to experience the beauty and inspiration of sailing Roseway through Caribbean waters, bringing academics and community-building to life. Whether in English, History, Science or another applicable area of study, an academic-based program can be tailored to accommodate specific lessons linked with nautical students and life aboard our historic tall ship.

Roseway can accommodate up to 20 students and two professors or staff. While we recommend at least ten days, programs can run for one week to one month.

The safety of our students and crew is of utmost importance. For this reason we require:

- Well practiced safety procedures
- Carefully selected itineraries
- U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Inspection
- U.S. Coast Guard inspected safety equipment
- Licensed and experienced captains, mates, medical officer, and deckhand educators
