Field Trips

Welcome! The Castillo de San Marcos is a very popular destination for school field trips. In fact, approximately ten percent of our total visitation, or sixty thousand people, visit the Castillo every year as part of a school visit.

We are sorry but we are unable to provide Ranger-led educational tours.
