Seamester offers a range of unique gap-year adventures where our students live full-time aboard either S/Y Ocean Star or S/Y Argo sailing from island to island, country to country or continent to continent in any number of global locations. In this way, no part of the experience is confined by the four walls of a traditional classroom.
If you’re looking for a unique educational adventure, then Seamester could be the right program for you. Throughout the year, Seamester offers global semester at sea voyages for college students and high school graduates. From voyages as short as 20 days to as long as 90, S/Y Ocean Star, our 88-foot schooner, sails full-time in the Caribbean, whereas our new vessel S/Y Argo circumnavigates the world.
Along the way, our crews visit many different islands and countries, undertaking research and service projects with local government and private organizations while simultaneously working toward their academics and certifications.
Program Location(s): International — Australia, Fiji, Galapagos, Italy, South Africa, Spain, Tahiti, Thailand, and the Caribbean
