Up to six participants will board the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves' 25-foot Triumph Windsorcraft vessel, take a short ride to the snorkel site, then don masks and snorkels to see firsthand the seagrass beds and other habitats marine creatures call home. Sea urchins, varieties of fish, seastars, whelks and other animals can be discovered. Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves staff will assist in collecting and identifying these animals, as well as discuss the importance of aquatic preserves and the species that depend on these estuarine habitats. Participants should expect to be out for two hours. We will have a small cooler aboard with bottled water. No large coolers please due to limited deck space. Please wear a bathing suit, and plan to bring snorkel gear (if you have it; otherwise gear will be provided), towel, water, sunscreen and hat.
