Dive with CCMI – November 11-13, 2023
Contribute to Marine Conservation while Diving with CCMI!
Are you a diver in the Cayman Islands looking for something fun and interesting to do over the fall holiday weekend? Have you ever wanted to scuba dive with a purpose? Are you interested in learning more about Caymans coral reef ecosystem?
Join our team at the Little Cayman Research Centre this fall by spending your holiday weekend diving and living at CCMI’s fully functioning remote field station! Divers are invited to become citizen scientists by helping our team collect and enter data to aid the most critically endangered ecosystem in the oceans, our coral reefs.
When – November 11th – 13th, 2023 (Remembrance Day Weekend – Cayman Islands)
Where – The Little Cayman Research Centre (North Coast Road, Little Cayman, Cayman Islands)
Price – KYD $675
WHO SHOULD JOIN US AS CITIZEN SCIENTISTS:
Certified recreational scuba divers (18+ years of age) who are interested in diving with a purpose, learning more about coral reefs, and being a part of a unique diving experience at CCMI’s Little Cayman Research Centre.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Citizen scientists will be immersed in the daily life of our Little Cayman Research Centre, where they learn about the importance of coral reefs, a range of conservation projects, and the basics of underwater field research methods. Participants will assist our team with timely local, regional, and international citizen science projects – learning methodologies which can be continued at home after leaving your experience with CCMI!
There will also be plenty of opportunities outside of diving to explore the beauty of Little Cayman through the use of our bicycles, kayaks, and sunrise yoga on the deck. Life at the field station is a truly unique experience, complete with nightly stargazing, beach BBQs, and an ocean view of the Bloody Bay Marine Park just steps from your bedroom door!
This is a weekend where you will have the opportunity to learn as much or as little as you want!
Fee includes full room and board (3 meals/day + snacks, 3 days/2 nights), boat and shore diving, all lecture and survey materials, and ground transportation in Little Cayman. Price does not include Divers Alert Network (DAN) insurance, flights, or dive gear.
