Seabirds and Whales Monday Cruise
This is a whale watch with a birding twist! Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Education Center has teamed up with Newburyport Whale Watch, to create this birding whale watch. This program focuses on seabirds, but we plan on seeing and learning about marine mammals as well. Onboard the Captains Lady III, we will look for concentrations of birds such as storm-petrels, shearwaters, gannets, jaegers, terns, and phalaropes. Dave Larson from the Joppa Flats Education Center will join the Captains Lady III marine mammal naturalists onboard to help spot and narrate bird sightings.
To register for these marine birding trips, please DO NOT CALL Joppa Flats Education Center. Instead, call the Newburyport Whale Watch at 1-800-848-1111. Seniors receive a $5 discount. Children ages 4 to 12 are eligible for the children's rate.
