2021 Block Island Maritime Institute (BIMI) Internships

Do you love being in and on the water? Do you have the desire to share that love with others? The Block Island Maritime Institute endeavors to inspire our visitors to learn to love Block Island through engagement  in marine science and maritime activities. To do so, we need people that have experience and education in marine biology, oceanography and other related degrees to engage with the public and assist with aquarium maintenance.

Our summer intern positions are now closed. Applications for Summer 2022 will be accepted between December 28, 2021 and January 23, 2022 .

Volunteer opportunities for Summer 2021 continue to be  available if you are interested in being a docent or aquarist assistant

Would you rather fish?  We have room for 1 to 2 more people to help stock our tanks and would love to talk to you if you fish and have a live well on your boat.

We also consistently have an ongoing variety of construction and display upgrades underway. If you have a particular skill that you would like to share, we would be happy to speak with you.

If you would like to volunteer or apply for an internship, please contact us at
