Entertaining

While I was at CCMI I met so many new friends and created so many bonds with them. I loved learning about all the fishes and animals in the ocean. And being able to do so many other activities too. I had a great time at CCMI this last summer

Unique

Had a truly amazing time in little cayman, with some of the best diving, meeting new friends, learning about fish and coral through practical lessons and dives, and got a real understanding of what it's like to be a marine biologist.

Awesome!

I definitely would recommend to anyone to join this experience of fun, educational, and encounters in the most pristine waters in Little Cayman. From diving to the different projects that we had to do, I had an awesome week. I definitely recommend CCMI summer camp to anyone who wishes to get the best diving and interacting with people from different cultures!

One of the best experiences of my life

The Rutgers Coral Reef Internship Program at the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) was one of the best experiences of my life. It is truly hard to put this one of a kind opportunity into words and it is best left to be experienced first hand. I would highly recommend this opportunity to anyone that has a love, passion, or interest for the ocean and our coral reefs. Many people state that Walt Disney World is one of the most magical places on Earth but I would have to disagree with that statement and would argue that Little Cayman is THE most magical place on Earth!
