Recommended for ages 4 & up

Cruise from Oak Bluffs Harbor with a Felix Neck naturalist to explore the waters of Vineyard Sound aboard The Skipper!

Along the way we'll check lobster and fish traps for the diversity of crabs, fish, and shellfish that live in the waters around the island. Participants will have a chance to look at the catch up-close and, time permitting, try their hand at scup fishing.

This cruise is a great way to experience the tranquility of the ocean while discovering underwater wildlife!
