Half-Day Marine Mammal & Birding Excursion
Join us for a unique exploration of the coast in search of a variety of marine mammals and seabirds! This is a trip you will not want to miss, as the Mid-Atlantic provides critical habitat for many different species of animals. We will explore hot spots known for their exceptional sightings of birds and seals while experts onboard provide information about the animals and current local research that is being conducted to better help protect them.
Our trip course will be determined by the concentration of recent sightings of our targeted species that include harbor and gray seals, sea ducks (scoters, scaups, & mergansers), seabirds (razorbills, jaegers, & gannets), humpback whales, and bottlenose dolphins. Our vessels are ADA compliant, equipped with two bathrooms, an extensive snack bar, a heated indoor cabin with comfortable seating, and have spacious upper decks that offer panoramic views which are prime for viewing wildlife.
Marine mammal sightings are guaranteed. If we are unable to locate any marine mammals, you may ride again for FREE! No refunds will be offered.
