Date: Saturday, October 7, 2017
Join the Seacoast Science Center and Newburyport Whale Watch for a special river cruise and silent auction to benefit the Center’s Marine Mammal Rescue and ocean education efforts. While cruising the Merrimack River aboard the Captain’s Lady III, we’ll enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar while searching for seals, enjoying sunset, and having a blast. Marine Mammal Rescue Team members will regale you with stories from the field and explain how their work on the New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts coast plays an important role in monitoring ocean health.
All proceeds from the Save the Seals River Cruise benefit our Marine Mammal Rescue Program. The seals can’t pay to be rescued, so we rely on our community to help keep our Team ready to respond to every marine mammal that hauls out or strands on the New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts coast.
Don’t forget, your participation in the silent auction aboard our cruise supports our Marine Mammal Rescue Program too! Vie to win gift baskets in the silent auction, including New England Patriots Tickets, local restaurant and retail gift cards, professional teeth whitening, Waterville Valley lift tickets, spa treatments, and more! You won’t want to miss out!
Please note that actual tickets will not be mailed; your name will be included on the list of registered guests when you arrive. The boat will leave from 54 Merrimac Street, Newburyport, MA. Parking is available for a small fee.
You must be 21 or over to attend.
