School Group Programs
Explore, Learn & Have Fun!
Field trips provide students with a great opportunity to connect what they are learning in school, with the outside world. They get a hands-on view of the things they've learned will experience outside of the classroom. We're proud to offer a number of educational (and FUN) programs that will suit the needs of any classroom or grade.
We're also delighted to offer teachers and staff with their very own opportunities to celebrate! Group outings, Christmas parties & end of the year celebrations are but a few reasons to choose Ambassatours to mark an occasion. Join us onboard the Tall Ship Silva or plan an event at Cable Wharf Kitchen & Patio! We would love to host your special event.
