SUSiE is the Science Under Sail Institute for Exploration – a registered 501(c)3 scientific institute. Our mission is to educate, inspire and accelerate the next generation of ocean scientists and explorers. We accomplish this by providing a transformative experience for students joining our scientist-led research expeditions to study remote coral reef ecosystems.
Research expeditions are conducted aboard large sailing catamarans, which serve as an at-sea laboratory. Students benefit from the unique opportunity to live and work side-by-side with established scientists and instructors, immersed in real research using the latest in cutting-edge gear and techniques. Students are also empowered to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to sail and navigate the research vessel, promoting SUSiE’s belief that globally responsible research can and should be conducted under sail. Beyond expeditions, SUSiE continues to mentor its alumni through its digitally-curated modern mentorship community.
