Description

Join us as we celebrate the homecoming of Florida Institute of Oceanography's state-of-the-art Research Vessel, the W.T. Hogarth to Bayboro Harbor. FIO will be honoring the contributions made by the City of St. Petersburg, the University of South Florida, and Eckerd College, which made the construction of this remarkable vessel possible. The $6.3 million, 78-foot vessel has spent the last two years at Duckworth Steel Boats in Tarpon Springs being built. The R/V Hogarth is outfitted with the latest and greatest marine technology, see for yourself with a short tour* on-board the vessel. Light refreshments will be provided.

Over the next few months, the vessel will be on display and open to the public at major ports around the state of Florida. Port tour stops kickoff with the Homecoming, followed by the Florida Marine Science Symposium in St. Pete, the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, Ft. Pierce, Cape Canaveral, and more.


*Comfortable, non-slip, closed toe shoes are recommended for boat tours.
