During the summer months, knowledgeable WHOI volunteers guide visitors on free walking tours through the WHOI dock area and other restricted village facilities.
Each year WHOI attracts a variety of visiting groups-- from foreign oceanographic institutions and government organizations to the Naval Command College and various alumni groups. Groups hosted by the Institution and its staff often hear presentations by WHOI researchers, visit one or more labs, and, if possible, tour a ship.
Science Made Public Lecture Series
During July and August, the Exhibit Center and Information Office are sponsoring a series of public talks by WHOI scientists and engineers.
