Scientist for a Day on Great Bay Cruise
(08:30 AM - 02:30 PM)

- Saturday, July 26, 2014

- Thursday, August 7, 2014

- Tuesday, August 12, 2014

 

Join fellow explorers on an activity-based cruise from Portsmouth up the Piscataqua River into the Great Bay Estuary and to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory. You are likely to get your hands wet as you learn about marine and estuarine ecosystems on this informal, educational cruise. You'll be invited to tow for plankton and marvel at its movement in a magnifying scope; capture water from below the surface and test its characteristics; observe, handle, and hear about plants and animals from the unique habitats of the estuary; deploy an otter trawl; and find out what scientists study about The Great Bay.

 

The Great Bay Estuary system adds approximately 150 miles to New Hampshire's relatively small coastline. Those 150 miles include everything from industrial, historical, and military landmarks to a wildlife refuge and National Estuarine Research Reserve. There will be opportunities to learn more about these landmarks and share what you know. There is also plenty of time on-board to just enjoy the fresh air, sights, and sounds of the estuary with your on-board companions as we scan for bald eagles, osprey, and harbor seals.

 

You will cruise aboard the 50 foot UNH Research Vessel, Gulf Challenger, under the guidance of the enthusiastic and knowledgeable UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docents, a New Hampshire Sea Grant water resources educator, and the crew of the Gulf Challenger. Time aboard the boat is approximately 5 hours including about a half-hour visit to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory.

 

To ensure your comfort on the cruise, plan to dress for variable weather and to be exposed to the elements much of the time, although there is some space down below for use as needed. We cruise rain or shine! Bring a brown-bag lunch to eat while we make our way up the River or during our stop at Jackson Estuarine Lab. There are toilet facilities at the UNH Pier facility, on the Gulf Challenger, and at Jackson Lab. Some walking is required, mostly embarking and disembarking and can include steep ramps and floating docks. Comfortable, sturdy shoes are recommended. Seating is very limited, except on deck surfaces. The cruises are best experienced with an attitude for adventure and learning, sure to ignite your curiosity and provide an unforgettable experience! Open to members of the public on a first come, first served basis. Children 10 years of age and older are welcome on the cruises when escorted at all times by an adult. Cruises depart from the UNH pier, which is next to the U.S. Coast Guard Station at Fort Point in New Castle.

Travel out to Appledore on the University of New Hampshire research vessel, the R/V Gulf Challenger, with UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docent tour guides. Investigate the intriguing intertidal creatures and zooplankton collected from the ocean at informal science stations on the boat.

 

On Appledore, explore the natural history of the island with the Docents. Look down to magnificent rock formations of eons past and up to a sky filled with birds that live on the island today. Learn about the plants that withstood the salty sea air to provide colonial settlers with remedies and today supply nutrition for the long voyages of migrating birds.

 

Discover the important role the Shoals played in the fishing economy of the 17th century. Find out about the amazing resort hotels on the Shoals in the 19th century and the people who flocked to the Isles for the healthy sea air. Visit the recreated garden of famous poet and essayist Celia Thaxter, who once lived on Appledore, and learn of her family's life on the Shoals.

 

Visit the main laboratory of the Shoals Marine Lab, the largest facility for undergraduate study of its kind in the world, and examine marine organisms via video microscope. Learn how students at the lab delve into the intensive study of the marine world and how you and your family can take a course there.

 

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy while looking from the Isles to the coast or gazing at the long line of the horizon where the sea meets the sky. Taking an Appledore Island Walking Tour with the Docents is a voyage you'll never forget.

 

Open to members of the public on a first come, first served basis. Children 10 years of age and older are welcome on the cruises when escorted at all times by an adult.
