The Block Island Maritime Institute is a non-profit maritime and marine science education organization. Our mission is to foster the preservation of maritime skills and traditions, and to promote awareness and knowledge of marine ecology. A priority of the Block Island Maritime Institute is to preserve the rich maritime heritage of Block Island by providing maritime and marine science related activities on-island, and travel opportunities to local island children.
