Get a Head Start on Your Marine Career

Experts agree: if you are looking to get a head start on your marine career, start young and never pass up an opportunity to get experience in an area that interests you. Volunteer opportunities, internships, camps, mentoring programs, science clubs, and independent research projects give you a taste of what the field is like and may give you and edge over someone who lacks experience.

Dolphin Encounters Student Internship Camp targets students or recent graduates and is intended to provide young adults with experience in marine career areas as well as assist in fulfilling research projects, internships or work-study requirements. The student can also use the experience as an asset to his or her own resume.

Program content is dependent on the time of year in which the internship is performed. Applicants can expect to be involved in assisting trainers throughout each day with animal care & training duties, including, but not limited to, fish preparation, pool maintenance and record-keeping as well as duties in the areas of education programs, guest relations and customer service. So take the first step and get a head start on your marine career!
