All users of boats must have reviewed the Small Boat Safety Manual and received appropriate approvals as described therein. Note that this includes:
- Completing the online application: Small Boat Operator Application form
- Providing proof of completion of a boating course
- Completing a boating checkout with station staff prior to any boat use
For those who wish to use the boats and other equipment for SCUBA diving, see the Scientific Diving page (note: approval required prior to arriving at Gump Station).
