Tabor Boy has welcomed scores of new Tabor students during our summer Orientation at Sea.
Although optional, the Orientation at Sea Program gives students opportunities to get to know one another and the school in a learning environment that is unique to Tabor Academy. Students spend five days aboard the Tabor Boy, living and working together with the captain, crew, a Tabor faculty chaperone, and an onboard instructor and program director. Each week, the vessel sails to various anchorages and harbors in Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound. Students become familiar with local geography and some of the region’s history while also learning about coastal marine ecology, navigation, and sail handling.
