These days, it can be difficult to teach students in a regular classroom environment. With the same curriculum each day, things can get monotonous pretty fast and students can start to feel bored. That’s why it’s a great idea to occasionally take them out of their comfort zone on adventures that are both exciting and educational.
There are plenty of benefits to field trips. Not only do they give students a chance to learn in other environments, but they promote education in an interest-driven setting instead of a set curriculum.
Want to know how you can give your students an experience they’ll remember for years to come? Keep reading below!

Field trip cruises
What child wouldn’t want to spend their school day cruising on Lake Coeur d’Alene, enjoying the scenery and learning about local wildlife and history? With CDA Cruises, you can take your students on the field trip of a lifetime! There are tons of daily cruises to choose from, or you can select an eagle watching tour for some winter wildlife education.
Eagle watching tours
Every year, hundreds of bald eagles migrate to Lake Coeur d’Alene to feed on the spawning population of Kokanee salmon in the water. It’s a great time to view them up close and in their natural habitat. And the best part – the scenery is just breathtaking!
With CDA cruises, you can take your students out on the lake, right up to their nesting grounds. You’ll be able to explore the history and migration patterns of these majestic birds, all from the safety of the cruise boat. Your students will enjoy watching these birds sitting in the trees and swooping down over the water and you’ll feel accomplished knowing they learned something about our national bird!
