Vessels

Each one of EIH's vessels is equipped with adequate safety equipment as defined by the United States Coast Guard, and maintenance is conducted regularly by EIH's equipment manager. Prior to vessel use, all boat passengers are provided with a thorough EIH boating introduction covering boat handling, safety, equipment, EIH specific procedures, and local boating conditions. Only EIH researchers with adequate licensing and competency levels are allowed to operate EIH vessels. A current Texas boater's safety certificate is mandatory to operate any EIH vessel and operation of large vessels requires higher levels of certification. EIH has OUPV licensed captains available for service depending on vessel use and conditions.

For more information about any of EIH's vessels, please contact EIH at eih@uhcl.edu or 281-283-3950.
