I recently participated in MSI's "Ecotour" program, a two-hour, on-water experience to help the general public better understand the San Francisco Bay's functions and characteristics. The tour was informative, well-organized, and engaging. Adults and children seemed to have a good time. I will be taking a group of adults on the tour in a few weeks and am very excited about this program!

MSI's summer camps are fantastic. Full of fun and science, 3 field trips in 5 days were a huge hit with my 7 year old. We'll definitely send him back year after year, and his younger sister is begging for her own chance to attend Marine Science Camp (next year!)

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing the amount of science knowledge gained by my child after just a week of science camp.

My daughter loved spending time at MSI both as a student and as a camper. She especially liked touching the shark and being on the boat. She thought the only improvement would be fewer games and more Marine Science stuff.

The Great!

my daughter's knowledge of and enthusiasm for marine science.

My daughter attended Ocean Explorers Summer Camp. Last year she attended as well, but as a entering first grader. She thoroughly enjoys herself, comes home telling us interesting facts about ocean life, and loves the counselors and staff. I couldn't be happier with this camp. There are two field trips to the beach and tide pools and a trip aboard their boat. It's fantastic!

I recently participated in a Discovery Voyage aboard the Marine Science Institute's boat in San Francisco Bay. I was truly impressed by the quality of the program. The staff do an excellent job of keeping the kids engaged and getting them excited about science and the environment. The program gets the kids to actively participate in collecting the samples and analyzing them. They have four science stations aboard the boat -- one each for plankton, large fish, sediment, and water quality. The children end up learning a ton without even realizing it.

The Great!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I think I learned a lot about other types of animals and what lives in the ocean that I didn't know was there. I really like being on the boat. *This review was collected during a boat trip and entered by GreatNonprofits staff on behalf of the reviewer

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

maybe do a little bit more with the actual animals and a little bit less with field trips.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

going on the boat and catching the shark.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

really nice, energetic, and funny.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do swimming with the dolphis for everybody!

Ways to make it better...

when we go on the field trip we didn't have to ride for such a long time. We spent lots of time on the bus.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I know they try really hard to not litter, so cutting back on trash is a challenge.

I learned stuff about fish and megalodons and sharks and plankton. One more thing that's really cool about Marine Science Institute is the Free Willy whale. One thing that I think they could improve is letting us in the water. *This review was collected during a boat trip and entered by GreatNonprofits staff on behalf of the reviewer

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add a function so that they could help animals. So if someone found an animal that was hurt, they could call the Marine Science Institute.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

instead of just sitting around listening to the teachers, we also get to pass stuff around and it's more interactive. Also, I like the field trips.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

nice. Jenny was really happy when they found the plankton. Funny.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

get a real megalodon tooth. They only have a fake one but a real one would be cool. And more boats.

Ways to make it better...

we got to have an overnight on the boat. And a picnic would be fun.
