Take a Discovery Cruise on Great Bay or To The Isles of Shoals

June 20, 2007

Join the UNH marine docents this summer for a day cruise aboard the university’s research vessel, the R/V Gulf Challenger. Find out what UNH researchers are learning about the marine and estuarine environments, and get up close and personal with coastal creatures and local history.

Learn about the history of New Hampshire’s seacoast aboard the Isles of Shoals Discovery Cruise. The Shoals Cruise includes a visit to Appledore Island and a tour of the Shoals Marine Lab.

Or choose the Great Bay Discovery Cruise, which travels up the Piscataqua River into Little Bay/Great Bay Estuary. Marine docents will lead activities such as catching plankton and testing water quality. The Great Bay cruise also stops for a tour of the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory.

Cruises cost $25 per person and leave the Portsmouth Fish Pier at 9 a.m. Children ages 10 and older are welcome with an adult. Space is limited; reserve your cruise now. For more information or to make a reservation, visit www.unh.edu/marine-education.

Discovery Cruises are sponsored by NH Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension. Dates and availability are subject to change.
