Seabird Cruise to Petit Manan Island 2023
Sunday, July 9, 2023, Petit Manan Island (Pelagic)
(3:30 - 5:30 PM)
Travel on the water in style on the Bar Harbor Whale Watching Tour Company’s Friendship V as we team up for a special fund-raiser event for the Refuge. We will be visiting our Petit Manan Island, which is home to terns, puffins, black guillemots and more. While we can’t go ashore on the island, we will have the opportunity to radio into the island and ask questions to the seabird researchers living on the island. There is a very good chance of seeing Wilson’s storm-petrels or shearwaters on this trip. But wait, there’s more! We will be joined by the popular Maine bird guide and columnist for the Bangor Daily News, Bob Duchesne. Bob will give a short talk and Q&A on the ride back to Bar Harbor. Tickets are $70, and 100% of each ticket supports the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands NWR. Parking is by permit in the Bar Harbor area along designated streets and can be limited so get there early! Rain or shine!
