The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center (MCERC) is looking for a boat captain for the upcoming research year. Ideally the captain is interested in whales and turtles. We are looking for an experienced captain with boat experience in a 10 meter inboard engine dive boat.

You will be working as the boat operator and collecting data in the Turks and Caicos in exchange for a place to sleep with our research team, participation in our curriculum, and the opportunity to snorkel and dive (for those certified) in one of the most beautiful places on Earth!

Salt Cay Divers is looking for a boat operator for the winter months (January through the end of March) to bring our research team and whale watching guests to see whales off Salt Cay.

Interested in whale research? Do you want to participate in collecting data for turtles as well?

MCERC is happy to help you set this up as an internship to help build your CV as well.

See you there!
