Free Marine Mammal Safaris 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 21, 2018, 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 over the age of 5 under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

The 1st trip boards at 9:30am, departs at 10:00am, and returns by 11:30am

The 2nd trip boards at 11:45am, departs at 12:00pm, and returns by 1:30pm

The 3rd trip boards at 1:45pm, departs at 2:00pm, and returns by 3:30pm.

Please note that we have plenty of space on our first cruise, departing at 9:30 AM, and are currently waitlisting for the 2nd and 3rd cruises.

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

These cruises are free but space is limited, so reservations are required. To reserve your spot please fill out this RSVP form. 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.

A very special thank you to our Youth and Family Program Funders and Massachusetts Bay Lines for their generous support of this event!

All of us at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay are looking forward to seeing you on the harbor, the shore, the beach and the islands this year!
