The Sea School sails out of Moreton Bay, delivering fun and adventurous marine expeditions that achieve practical and meaningful learning outcomes.
We focus on skill development, sustainable practice, connection and enjoyment through our unique Sea School curriculum.

The Blue Peter is a maritime signal flag (P) which has also been used as a symbol for maritime youth development programs for a very long time – our original blog has more detail on this.
We are proud to continue this important tradition of training for a better life through adventures at sea – with the help of our young people and the broader community.
We use the term “Blue Peter” in reference to the intentional use of maritime activities to develop personal capacity for insight, leadership and facilitation through adventure education and expeditionary learning processes.
“The Sea School” refers to our core work in delivering a range of sail training programs for Sea School Certificate, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, school based curriculum, Skipper training and other tailored expedition objectives.
Our past training programs include those that were delivered for:
Mission Australia*, Silky Oaks Childrens Haven*, Noosa Pengari Steiner School*, Boonah State High School*, John Paul College*, PCYC*, Wesley Mission*, Scenic Rim Shire Council*, Church of England Grammar School*, Mapleton QCCC, South Passage*, NSW Health, Australian Catholic University*, Paramount Adventures*, Hillbrook Anglican School*, Clairvaux McKillop College*, Youth Plus*, Human Nature*, Silkwood School* and our own internal training courses* for Sea School Certificate trainees, skippers, sea guides and other facilitators of awesomeness!
“I felt safe and comfortable at all times when aboard each boat because there was always a leader who knew what they were doing.”
“I feel more confident with all of these areas and I think I am going to be more prepared for the next expedition.”
“The program met and went far beyond my expectation for the trip. I had a far greater trip than I was imagining.”
“I liked everyone as they were very welcoming and all the activities I enjoyed a lot.”
“I had a fantastic time! And so did all of the young people, at some stage or another ;)”
“…too good – it takes the thunder away from our year 10 expedition.”
