Internship opportunities at Coco View Resort
Coco View Resort is proud to encourage young scientists and aspiring Dive Masters by offering the fantastic resources of our island paradise.
University of Alabama Marine Sciences Internship. Each summer for the past three years CCV has been host to two of ‘Bama’s best and brightest. For five weeks during May & June these students participate in coral reef health surveys, water quality analysis and marine life observations. Under the tutelage of Doc Radawski they work hands-on on their individual Marine Science research projects, document their work and share their progress and results with Coco View guests in weekly presentations.
The interns live in staff housing at CCV. They dive on the boats with guests and on their own in the front yard. They participate in the daily operations of the resort. All of the past participants have left with deeper understanding of reef ecosystems, resort management, and Roatan island life.
