The Marine Institute open a call for ship-time applications each summer for ship-time on the RV Celtic Explorer and the RV Celtic Voyager. Applications are submitted using the on-line 'Survey Planning System' (SPS), and the schedules are published at year-end for the following year.
The survey schedules can change throughout the year, therefore please contact us to check whether any survey slots remain or to be notified if any dates become available. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for ship-time call notifications or if you have any other queries regarding the research vessels please contact RV Operations.
If you are considering applying for shiptime, please read the Guidelines to Applicants for guidance.
