Wade into the water with large seine nets to catch fish, shrimp, and other creatures. We'll dip net, seine, and beachcomb the tidal creeks. You may get wet to our waists so make sure you dress appropriately and wear shoes that can get wet. For children age 6 and older with caregiver.

Instructions and Directions:

Pre-registration is very strongly recommended. This popular program tends to fill up in advance, but if spaces are available, walk-in registrations are welcome. For non-members, the program fee includes sanctuary admission for the remainder of the day.

Please arrive and check-in 10 minutes before the start of the program. Participants should expect to get wet to their waists. We recommend that you bring sunscreen and drinking water. Wear comfortable walking shoes that you won't mind getting sandy or wet. To protect your feet from sharp shells, we require everyone to keep their shoes on at the beach; Tevas, Crocs, and aquasocks are good choices.

Please note our cancellation policy: In order to receive a refund, you must notify us of your cancellation at least 7 days before the program begins. If we cancel the program, you will receive a full refund. We reserve the right to change programs, schedules, and instructors, and to cancel programs due to low enrollment or unfavorable weather.
