We had a great crew of 60 people aboard Newburyport Whale Watch’s Captain’s Lady III for our 3rd annual Save the Seals River Cruise on Saturday October 7th. Many thanks to our sponsors for the event: Newburyport Whale Watch, Blue Ocean Event Center and Merrimack Valley Events by Simply Elegant Catering.
Marine Mammal Rescue Team Manager Ashley Stokes welcomed the group, told about rescue work and provided information about the groups of seals we could see from that boat: a dozen or so as we made our way down the river and over 60 on the Salisbury side of the harbor. We appreciated the generous bidding on our silent auction items and enjoyed the best weather yet for our event.
Stay tuned for details on next year’s cruise: we are planning to move it back a few weeks so we will have more minutes of light and better opportunities to see the seals. Thanks again to all who joined us to support marine mammal rescue in NH and northern MA.
