Join the elite team of community members that make OSO possible.

Jack O’Neill, wetsuit innovator, started OSO in 1996 to teach children to appreciate and care for the marine environment.

“This is such an important experience for students. We can learn a lot in the classroom, but being out on the Sea Odyssey sail boat and experiencing the fragile eco system helps them truly build empathy for our oceans. Now that they care more, we can go farther back in the classroom. THANK YOU!”

Ms. Gilpin, Green Acres Elementary

“Such an amazing day! Objectives (learning) were very clear for each activity. Lots of hands-on and thought provoking discussions. The best part, the wonderful teachers. You planted lots of seeds today!”

Ms. Harrington, Rolling Hills Middle School

“My students said that they learned so much that it "changed their world" We look forward to this every year! Thank you!”

Ms. Jacobs, Bradley Elementary
