Visiting The Lab
Whether you are coming for a day or a week, the laboratory welcomes investigators and educational groups from all over the world to use the FSU Coastal and Marine Laboratory. This is also a wonderful site for working retreats.
No matter the reason, we have wonderful resources available in a relatively pristine environment embedded in a hot spot of biological diversity. Read about our facilities and marine operations before making a reservation. We have staff on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Want to tour the lab?
We love showing off the lab and the research. Tours occur on Fridays 11-4pm. If you need a different time, please call to make an appointment so that a staff member can be available to take you and your group around the lab. The third Friday of every month, we have tours of the R/V Apalachee (when it is in port). The tour includes a short video depicting life on a research vessel, tour of the boat and of the lab. Questions or to schedule a private tour, call (850) 697-4120 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you!
