Catalina Island is a beautiful natural laboratory. Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) is a unique outdoor science school, providing an exciting outdoor education experience for 4 through 12th grade students from public and private schools.

Our program is offered at three locations on Catalina Island – operated by the nonprofit corporation, Guided Discoveries – including Toyon Bay, Fox Landing, and Cherry Cove. During our three and five day programs, students and teachers enjoy a variety of hands-on labs and field activities in Marine Science and Island Ecology.

CIMI is a STEM based program.
