Out and About: Rhode Island's Seal Watch Tours

Out and About: Rhode Island's Seal Watch Tours

Starting today, Save the Bay Narragansett offers hour-long Seal Watch Tours ($20) departing from Bowen's Ferry Landing in Newport, RI. Seeing seals is much easier with ship-provided binoculars, and local species include Harbor, Gray, Harp, and Hooded Seals. The best time to spot them is when low tide falls in the middle of the day because that's when they stop feeding and "haul-out" onto their resting spots!

Educators provide commentary on the Bay's migratory seals while the boat heads to the popular haul-out near Rose Island. Tours run on weekends (and school holiday weeks) from November 1 through April 30, with departure times based on tides and weather.

That's a baby gray seal pup – kinda like little Grendel here: http://siarchives.si.edu/history/exhibits/thisday/december.htm (scroll down to December 20, 1980).
