Air Travel and Ground Transportation

The two airports nearest to Woods Hole are Boston Logan Airport (BOS) and Providence T.F. Green Airport (PVD). Both airports are ~80 miles from Woods Hole, but Boston Logan Airport offers better bus service to Woods Hole. Please check bus schedules before finalizing your flight to ensure you will not arrive too late to catch the last bus.

The buses from the Boston airport (Peter Pan Bus Lines and Plymouth & Brockton) have a stop close to the Sands of Time Motor Inn in Woods Hole and the Inn on the Square in Falmouth. Your departure "city" would be Boston Logan Airport or T.F. Green Airport, with arrival city as Woods Hole or Falmouth to locate the correct schedule on their website. The bus stop for "scheduled buses" can be found outside each terminal at Boston Logan Airport. If you are staying at the Holiday Inn or another Falmouth hotel, you will have to request a taxi from the Falmouth bus station.

Falmouth Taxi
T: (508) 548-3100

All Seasons Taxi
T: (508) 548-9990

Other options to travel the ~90-minute trip from the airports to Woods Hole are the GoGreen Shuttle, White Tie Limousine, Enterprise and National car rentals, and taxis.

We have shuttles to transport participants between the hotels (Inn on the Square and Holiday Inn) and Redfield Auditorium in downtown Woods Hole each day. If you do drive (personal or rental car), we encourage you to leave your cars safely parked at your hotel and use the shuttle, as parking on the WHOI downtown waterfront campus is not available and street parking is quite limited and strictly enforced.

Health Protocols

Your health and safety are of priority concern. In order to help ensure a safe environment for in-person participants, we will be undertaking the following measures:

  • Setting up a COVID vaccination verification for in-person participants
  • Wearing of masks optional
  • Providing masks and personal hand sanitizer

All in-person participants will present confirmation of full vaccination at meeting check-in, so you will be assured that fellow participants on site are vaccinated. 

We encourage everyone to monitor the latest COVID trend and forecast for Falmouth, MA.

Please check back frequently for updates to the protocols.

Visa Invitation Letters

For international attendees who require an invitation letter to attend the workshop, please contact Jennie Zhu to make a formal request.
