Cruise from Oak Bluffs Harbor with a Felix Neck naturalist to explore the waters of Vineyard Sound aboard The Skipper. We 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 to try their hand at scup fishing if time permits. This cruise is a great way to experience the tranquility of the ocean at sunset while discovering underwater wildlife. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
