Fishing Academy

The Fishing Academy at BIMI provides a safe, fun environment for children ages 6-14 to learn how to fish, or improve on the angling skills they already have. To ensure the best possible experience, we set a limit of 10 students per session.

Tuesday Talks

Scientists, historians, archaeologists, and researchers bring their fascinating stories and latest findings to our weekly Tuesday Talk series. Join us each Tuesday evening this summer for an enjoyable evening of information and conversation.

Family Fun

Our daily programs are perfect to peak a child’s curiosity about the marine world. We offer a variety of fun family activities with a focus on hands-on exploration throughout the week. See what we have in store.
