The ISC is excited to announce an expanded suite of public tour dates this summer! Starting July 18, 2017, tours will take place every Tuesday at 11:00am. Feeds from ships of exploration, including the E/V Nautilus and NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, are streaming live to the ISC almost every day.  Explore with us!

Upcoming ISC public tours:

  • August 22, 2017 **tour is full
  • August 29, 2017

Reservations for the ISC public tour must be made 24 hours in advance.  Summer tours have filled 3-4 days ahead of their scheduled date; advance registration is suggested.  No school or camp groups, please.


Private ISC tours are available for school, youth, and public groups as well as other organizations.  Groups larger than 30 will be broken into multiple tours. Because the ISC is a working facility, private tours must be scheduled well in advance of the desired date.
