Program Leader: Captain Brian Gagliardi, Southampton Vessel Operations Manager.
Join SoFo staff and Stony Brook University marine biologists for this whale-watching cruise aboard Stony Brook University’s R.V. Paumanok. Around this time of year, whales are starting their long journey to the polar waters of the north in search of food. On this trip possible sightings are Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Bottlenose Dolphins, and many types of pelagic birds. If we’re lucky, we might even see a Leatherback Sea Turtle!
We’ll be offshore, so wear appropriate clothing. Bring binoculars if you have them as well as drinking water and a light snack. Limited Enrollment.
