Facility use is charged as two separate bills:
                                     1.)  Dorm, meals, marine educator, and facilities fees
                                     2.)  Vessels

You should not pay the bill until the end of the trip because your activities may have been different than originally planned due to fewer people or unpredictable weather, and you want to pay the correct amount.


For reservations contact Cindy Sevin @ (985) 851-2800 ext. 0 and for more information contact the Marine Education Staff.
