Osprey is the college’s research vessel and primary transport to our two islands, Great Duck and Mount Desert Rock. She offers students an opportunity to gain real experiences, not just in the marine sciences and maritime trade, but with art, history, and culture. From classes such as Ornithology, Marine Mammal Bio, the Human Ecology Core Course, and Drawing in Nature, students are able to experience their academics from the sea looking in.
