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;
