Plan your visit to KML

For our visitors to the Keys Marine Laboratory (KML), we would like to provide an online resource to help you plan your stay at the lab. From this pages Plan your visit links we provide up-to-date lists with directions to the lab from the nearest airports, locations of grocery and drug stores, some local attractions for those windy (off-water) days, and what you should bring from home to make your stay more enjoyable.

Once you have determined that you would like to use KML's facilities, contact KML to confirm the availability of resources for your requested dates before filling out the Facilities Use Request Form (FURF) form.

From the KML forms page you will find for detailed Information on KML's facilities and also guidelines & field lab etiquette documents for information you need to know before your arrival. When you are ready (and have confirmed dates with KML) use the Facilities Use Request Form (FURF), which is found on the KML forms page, to help schedule dorms, boat trips, labs, sea water systems, etc. The KML Vessel and Activities Schedule's Google calendar details currently scheduled KML activities to aid your planning.  Please contact the KML Operations Manager before submitting your FURF, the submission of your FURF is not a guarantee of a confirmed reservation.
