Event description: These cruises seek out the harbor seals, gray seals and even harp seals that have been coming down into the Sound in growing numbers each winter. Educators on board the research vessel Oceanic point out these federally protected marine mammals and talk about their natural histories. They'll also help identify such winter waterfowl as buffleheads, mergansers and Old Squaws. Bring binoculars and plenty of warm clothes. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Space is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting. The cruises depart from the dock outside the Aquarium's IMAX movie theater. For reservations or more details, call ext. 2206.
