Maritime Academies


Welcome to Maritime Academies!

Join us for GulfQuest's Summer Maritime Academies! All children ages 7-12 are eligible. The week-long Academies will feature different maritime themes each day. Academy activities will be taught in our exhibit space & in the museum's classrooms. The curriculum for our Academy has strong STEAM components, complemented by art, Social Sciences, and fun! During Academies cadets will get the chance to explore GulfQuest exhibits related to the Academy's themes. Our Academies are led by credentialed and experienced GulfQuest Educators in a safe and secure learning environment. A snack will be provided daily; campers will need to bring their own lunch.


The GulfQuest Educatoion Department is hard at work planning the 2021 Maritime Academies. Check back daily for future annoucements.

Registration will remain open until Academies are filled.



In Japanese ports like Yokohama, a main street or honcho-dori offered visiting sailors an enjoyable evening on shore. One theory holds that mariners corrupted honcho-dori. On a "hunky-dory," everything was fine, and that is what we mean today.
