Climb aboard Save the Bay's education vessel to catch a glimpse of migratory harbor seals lounging on Citing Rock near Rose Island. You'll learn all about the life of a seal, from their migration patterns and food habits to the laws and regulations involved in conserving this species, all while taking in 360-degree views of Narragansett Bay and historic Newport Harbor.
For more than 15 years, Save The Bay has been offering seal watch tours and nature cruises providing the opportunity to enjoy the cooler months while observing local wildlife.
One hour seal tours are entirely boat-based, while 1.75-hour tours include a visit to the grounds and lighthouse on Rose Island.
- One tour: $22 adult, $17 Save The Bay members, seniors, children aged 3-12
- 1.75-hour tour: $47 adult, $37 Save The Bay members, seniors, children aged 3-12
Tours depart from Bowen's Wharf Landing at 30 Market Square on Saturdays, Sundays and public school vacation days from November through April.
Due to COVID restrictions, Save the Bay cannot supply binoculars to tour participants. Please feel free to bring your own.
