Parking at WHOI is available for science parties joining and setting up on the vessel for their cruise.  Parking is not available for the general public. A parking pass must be displayed in your vehicle at all times.  Parking passes are available from the Marine Operations Coordinator or Marine Resource Coordinator.

If you wish to park your vehicle at WHOI while on a cruise you are welcome to, though we request that you park in either the School St. lot or the Quissett Campus parking lot.  The Quissett campus is a lighted parking lot that is patrolled regularly and is considered more secure.
