Dolphin Study

March 16, 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Explore tidal rivers and sounds by skiff while searching for local populations of bottlenose dolphins. Marine educators will explain various dolphin behaviors like spy hopping, tail slapping and chuffing! Children 10 years or older are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. 

Two boats will be used per program. Each boat is limited to 1-3 participants who are traveling as a group for a total fee of $66. If you would like to register 4-6 participants your party will be split between the two boats for a total of $132.

Register here by March 14.
