Message from the Director

With 2016 now behind us we look forward to all the potential 2017 will bring.  The Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation (UCRR) project that has required the closure of the U-Drive roadway that once passed by Fox Point docks, has been quite disruptive to our Fox Point operations including the Pavilion.  We are told the re-opening of the new U-Drive South with 2-way traffic, bike and pedestrians paths is slated for this spring. The much anticipated rebuild of our Fox Point docks is also scheduled for completion this spring.  With this new fully accessible facility it is our ambition to resume some of the activities here we have forgone during construction such as the Waterfront Recreation program which includes sailing and kayaking.  The new, larger indoor teaching and storage facilities will enhance and expand our research capabilities.  Back by popular demand will be our Monday Harbor Cruises open to all each Monday at noon June thru September. 

The Tall Ships will be returning June 17-22, with a large fleet of Class A vessels and a  Parade of Sail, we intend to take advantage of this event with a full week of public cruises to view vessels, look for a schedule to be posted here in the coming months.

With all the new buildings and roads being built we do anticipate some disruptions in terms of driving and parking on campus, to avoid any inconveniences please check http://www.umb.edu/news_events_media/news/construction before planning your visit to our waterfront this year.  

 Book a cruise today for your department, group or join one of our open cruises by calling 617.287.5404 or checking back here under ‘Choose Your Cruise’ for more details.

 

Sincerely,
