Tour the Endeavor this weekend

The research vessel Endeavor, at the University of Rhode Island, will be open for tours this Saturday, Nov. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This rare public opportunity to explore the Endeavor is to celebrate the ship's 30th anniversary. The public can also view exhibits, a short video about the Endeavor, and visit the Coastal Institute Bookstore at the Narragansett Bay Campus.

The R/V Endeavor is owned by the National Science Foundation and operated by URI's Graduate School of Oceanography. URI took delivery of the vessel in the fall of 1976.
