Free Marine Mammal Safaris and Arts at Atlantic Wharf during April Vacation Week!

Looking for free, fun things to do with your friends, family, kids or group during vacation week? 

Marine Mammal Safaris are back!

On Saturday April 22, 2017, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and Massachusetts Bay Lines will host 3 free Marine Mammal Safaris to search for seals and porpoises and share songs and stories of Boston Harbor and the sea. These free trips are open to the public. We welcome school and community groups, youth organizations, friends, families, and children under the supervision of a parent, guardian, or chaperone.

The 1st trip boards at 9:00am, departs at 9:30, and returns by 11:00am

The 2nd trip boards at 11:15am, departs at 11:30, and returns by 1:00pm

The 3rd trip boards at 1:15pm, departs at 1:30, and returns by 3:00pm.

All three trips depart from and return to the Massachusetts Bay Lines dock at Rowes Wharf (behind the Boston Harbor Hotel). You can find directions at http://www.massbaylines.com/wharf-and-contact/

These cruises are free but space is limited, so reservations are required. To reserve your spot please email Amy at gaylord@savetheharbor.org. Please specify how many people in your group, a name for the reservation, and which cruise you would like to go on! We suggest you wear warm clothing, and bring a camera or binoculars. Snacks and beverages may be purchased aboard the boat, but you are also welcome to bring your own brown bag lunch.
