Event description: These cruises seek out the harbor seals and gray seals that have been coming down into the Sound each winter. Educators on board the research vessel Oceanic will 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 long-tailed ducks. Maritime Aquarium Study Cruises are good for ages 8 and older. Bring binoculars and plenty of warm clothes. Space on the Oceanic 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.
