Job Opportunities

Just how does one run an 18th century ship in the 21st century? Do you know how? Would you like to bring your expertise and skill to our vessels and programs? The Los Angles Maritime Institute provides a unique workplace, even among other organizations doing similar programs. While our peer organizations are built around one ship,  the Institute has three tall ships running daily programs and another being restored in out boat yard as we speak. Needless to say, there is plenty to be done.
