Ocean Institute


The Ocean Institute (OI) has redefined its future through a newly developed strategic plan and priorities that include research, education, conservation and excellence.  Located on the waterfront in Dana Point Harbor, the Ocean Institute is a federally recognized 501c3 nonprofit. Working at OI offers a unique educational environment and ability to demonstrate your appreciation for the ocean.  Its enviable location creates the opportunity to build meaningful bonds within the community, as well as inspire and influence future stewards of the ocean. OI’s mission “Using the ocean as our classroom, we inspire children to learn”, allows anyone with a passion for the ocean to utilize their skills in a positive, productive environment.
