Marine Mammal Safaris on April 18th

Save the Harbor/Save the Bay invites you to join us on a Marine Mammal Safari on Saturday April 18, 2015. These trips are FREE for schools, community groups, youth organizations, families, and friends of Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay. Join us as we search for harbor seals and porpoises, sing sea shanties and share stories of the sea on our annual Marine Mammal Safaris narrated by Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s Bay Watcher, Bruce Berman.

These playful harbor seals have been hanging around the Fish Pier all winter!
