Stanford students, faculty and staff intending to use boats for research or teaching at Hopkins Marine Station are eligible to join the Scientific Boating Program. Before reserving boats and tow vehicles, please make sure you have filed a detailed Scientific Boating Project Proposal or Renewal and have been authorized to use a vessel. Remember to file a float plan for each day's operations, and to close it out daily. For more information please contact freya [at] (subject: Scientific%20Boating%20Program%20Information%20Request) (Freya), Boating and Diving Safety Officer (BSO) for Hopkins. 

Note:  Hopkins boats must not be kept off-site or unavailable to other users for more than 2 weeks at a time, except by agreement between all users.  Trailering Hopkins boats to launch sites other than Monterey, Moss Landing and Santa Cruz must have approval from the Hopkins Boating Safety Committee in addition to meeting the off-site time limit.

International trips of any duration will be evaluated on a case-by-case base.
