The Marine Studies program at Canterbury flourishes due to the Knowlton Campus location, where students have direct access to the estuary and a living laboratory to explore. Proximity to Tampa Bay, Florida's largest open water estuary, and a host of environmental and scientific institutions gives our school unique access to community resources. Students and faculty benefit from Canterbury's relationships with:
- Cousteau Divers. Canterbury School is the only school in the world to be named a Cousteau Divers partner school.
- College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida
- Eckerd College
- U.S. Geological Survey
- Florida Wildlife Research Institute
- Tampa Bay Watch
- Tampa Bay Estuary Program, and many others.
