Why I work at Ocean Institute: I work at the Ocean Institute because we continually  provide a wide array of experiences that many students may otherwise never have had the opportunity to do.  I still remember my overnight trips throughout my education more then any other part, and giving students of all ages the same chance is something I am proud to be part of.  We have an incredibly strong leadership team that strive to push themselves and each other to give the best experience to each student that steps on a ship, reaches into touch a sea star or hike through our native chaparral.
