The view form the cafeteria is a panoramic picture of the city of St. John's, Signal Hill and the Harbour. Costs associated with events are as diverse as the events themselves. Cost for facilities and events is based on factors including menu, number of guests, room requirements, decorating, equipment requirements, and tours and presentations.

The menu options price list, as well as equipment and facilities rental list will assist you in identifying potential costs associated with holding an event at the Marine Institute. These lists are a starting point and individual packages will better reflect the total cost.

Institute personnel would be thrilled to assist you in planning and coordinating any activities/conferences held at the Institute.
