The Waterborne Education Center's (WEC) homeport is Anahuac Harbor, located at the mouth of the Trinity where the river meets the bay. Field labs also take place regularly on the Houston Ship Channel and occasionally on the Sabine and Neches rivers.

The Waterborne Education Center (WEC) provides hands-on learning opportunities in science, ecology and other topics. Field labs are conducted aboard two renovated Coast Guard buoy tenders. The vessels have classroom space below deck, where microscopes and viewing monitors can be set up to enhance learning experiences. Passengers are encouraged to disembark in the marsh to engage all of their senses in the exciting environment.
