Cousteau Center for Marine Studies

The Cousteau Center for Marine Studies (CCMS) is a 2,800 square foot stand-alone building on the Knowlton Campus dedicated to marine studies. This state-of-the-art learning laboratory engages students with three touch tanks, three outdoor tilapia tanks, a laptop lab, and interactive displays.

Because marine wildlife is abundant and diverse in our Tampa Bay backyard, our marine studies program also features a kayak fleet and a 23-foot Sea-Pro bay boat, both of which are used after school and on weekends for student exploration.
