Testimonials

John & Jean Cagianello

During the past ten years, along with our grandson, we have enjoyed several tide pooling and coastal explorations with Coastal Carol. From the beginning we have found Carol to be both passionate and an expert in her field; she consistently demonstrates the outstanding ability to relate to learners of all ages.

Carol is patient in her approach and confident in the abilities of those she meets. She is able to engage a wide age range of kids in cooperative learning activities where all are winners. At the same time, she seeks to convey her great knowledge and respect for the ocean and sea life to those with whom she comes in contact.

While on an expedition with Carol kids and families ‘un-connect the tech’ and come away with an understanding and appreciation not only of the valuable resources of our planet but also of the beauty, wonder and value of the ocean and sea life.

We highly recommend an excursion with Carol as part of any vacation to Maine.

“I was so excited when my young niece and nephew discovered the magic of tide pools with Carol. They screamed with delight when they found crabs and young lobsters. After playing games, going on treasure hunts, doing crafts, participating in plays and cooking with seaweed, both are started on a lifetime appreciation of oceans.” Continue Reading
