About Us

One of the lasting legacies of Guided Discoveries is our faculty. Our instructors all have 4-year degrees in the Sciences (or a related field) and serve over 55,000 students every year at our 5 facilities. With safety being one of our primary goals they are also required to have 1st aid, CPR-PR, and Waterfront Lifeguard certifications as well as comprehensive on-site training.

Our Guided Discoveries Alumni is far-reaching, with hundreds of them teaching in schools throughout the country. Many of our former staff can also be found in major aquariums, national sanctuaries, and at science centers and museums throughout the US. The growth and development of Guided Discoveries is a direct result of the energy, enthusiasm and contributions of our many staff over the years.
