Join the NBS staff as we steam offshore for our first Pelagic Nature Expedition in Rhode Island waters to celebrate the end of summer. This trip is scheduled during the warmest waters of the year when oceanic life is abundant. Although not a dedicated whale watching trip, seeing feeding whales is a possibility. This expedition will focus on a variety of life seldom seen from shore including feeding jellyfish swarms, sea turtles, pelagic birds such as storm-petrels, shearwaters, gannets, exotic terns and possibly jaegers as they circle the vessel. For fish, a number of techniques will be employed to either view or collect species ranging from large sharks to small fish fry. This trip will be on board the Coast Guard certified party fishing yacht “Seven B’s V” out of Galilee. You are welcome to bring your own food or purchase it onboard. There are onboard restrooms and ample parking. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars! Hurry! Tickets will sell out quickly for this adventure.
