Spend time with marine educators exploring the North end of Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge. We’ll anchor a Carolina skiff along the shoreline and hike along the northern part of the island looking for seashells before sampling the surf for cool marine animals using a seine net. Children 10 years or older are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. 

The trips are limited to 8 participants for a fee of $50 per person. Names and contact information for each passenger as well as an emergency contact information is needed for each passenger.

When you register to the right for any available session, select "Single Registration" to reserve one seat or select "Reserve Multiple Seats" to reserve more than one seat. On the next screen, choose the number of people you would like to register. If you exceed the maximum capacity, the system will let you know.
