Marine cruises likely to seal the deal

January 9, 2014 by  

Those in the area who love marine life should head to the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research this month. Starting in January and running through April, it will be offering seal cruises in the waters near Freeport, New York.

The cruises will allow passengers to see the local winter harbor seals that live in the area, and there might be some other interesting marine species that show up too. Each cruise will have a naturalist on board who can point out any interesting sights or animals that can be seen and teach passengers about seals and other marine life in the area. Each one will have a heated cabin area, which will be especially important during these winter months. There will also be a snack bar so that people are kept well-fed during the course of the trip.

Organizers may turn to printing companies to help them advertise for these cruises. Flyers and promotional posters are a great way to get the word out about an event, and distributing these in nearby towns like Island Park is sure to get locals interested.

The next cruise is set to take place over the weekend of January 11. All cruises board at 12:30 pm and depart half an hour later. There is a $26 admission fee for adults, $22 for children between 3 and 12 years of age and seniors, and a $19 per person charge for groups of 15 or more. Proceeds will go to the New York State Sea Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program.
