Protection Island Cruise

Protection Island Cruise, from BirdFest 2014

Sunday, April 15, 2018 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Launch from: By the north boat ramp at John Wayne Marina
Price: $60.00

This 3-hour boat trip aboard the M/V RED HEAD will cruise around Protection Island, a U.S. National Wildlife Refuge. Marine birds and mammals will be the targets of this trip, and we should see Rhinoceros Auklets, Long-tailed Ducks, Common Murres, loons, cormorants, gulls, harbor seals, and possibly porpoises, elephant seals, and sea lions. The RED HEAD is an enclosed, comfortable boat (although the best wildlife viewing is done out in the weather), and snacks and beverages are available for a small price. This trip is limited to 50 persons and will probably sell out rapidly, so get your reservations early.
