Marine Science Clubs

Many of Canterbury's clubs and activities focus on the marine environment through outreach and education about environmental issues.

  • Scuba Crew 210. BSA Venturing Crew 210 is a co-ed unit of the Boy Scouts of America chartered by Canterbury School of Florida's Marine Studies program. Membership in the crew is open to all students (not just Canterbury students!) ages 14 to 20, and men and women who have an interest in marine studies, conservation, community service and leadership development . . . and who like to have FUN in a high-adventure setting.

  • Dolphin Research Club. For middle and upper school students. Club members work with local college professors from USF and Eckerd and researchers aboard the Canterbury boat to photograph, identify, and observe local bottlenose dolphins.
  • Marine Studies Club. For lower, middle, and upper school students. Club members work to improve the local waterways by investigating environmental issues and impact.
  • ROV (Remote Operated Vehicles) Club. For middle and upper school students. Students design and create underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and compete in an annual MATE Rover competition.

Academic Teams

  • Beyond clubs, students can get involved in nationwide academic competitions like Ocean Bowl or Envirothon, which test math and science skills as applied to marine biology, chemistry, geology, physics, technology, history and economics.
    • The Envirothon team placed first in Pinellas County and were the Tampa Bay Regional Champions for the past two years (2015 and 2016).
    • 2014- 2015 Ocean Bowl team placed third at Regional competition
