Seal expedition offered by Buzzards Bay Coalition



The Buzzards Bay Coalition offers a winter trip in search of seals — among Buzzards Bay’s most numerous winter visitors.

The expedition will begin at the Buzzards Bay Discovery Center in Woods Hole, where guests will examine a model of a harbor seal and learn about their life in Buzzards Bay and beyond.

Then the group will board the M/V Richard Edwards to look for these playful mammals in Woods Hole Harbor. The boat is heated and we will provide binoculars.

The trip will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, (inclement weather date: Sunday, Jan. 20).

Meet at Buzzards Bay Discover Center, 21 Luscombe Avenue, Woods Hole.

Cost is $30 for Bay Coalition members, $40 for non-members, $25 for children.

Reservations are required. To RSVP, contact Rob Hancock at or 508.999.6363 x222.
