MCERC staff will send a list of things to pack and things we recommend you pack. This list will be sent 1-2 weeks before students are scheduled to arrive at the base station. Please be sure to think ahead and bring any prescriptions in the original bottle when you pack for your time with us.

A few things you will need (that may take time to get!)

  • A laptop computer and ear buds/ear phones
  • Required text books for your program (see program description)
  • A Type 1 personal flotation device is required for some programs.
  • Sea sick medicine (Bonine, Dramamine, patches, non-drowsy Dramamine)

Many people who have never been sea sick will feel nauseated when we are doing boat work. Please consider purchasing one of the anti-seasickness over the counter medications and bringing it with you… just in case!
