Save the Seals River Cruise

Join the Seacoast Science Center and Newburyport Whale Watch for a special river cruise to benefit the Center’s Marine Mammal Rescue program. We’ll search for seals, enjoy the sunset, and learn about our Marine Mammal Rescue Team’s work.

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 gift certificates to local restaurants, a gift cards, sports tickets, and more.
