CRUISE: The Extraordinary Wildlife of Merrymeeting Bay (Thursdays)
Thu, September 7, 2017, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Merrymeeting Bay is a unique confluence of six Maine rivers; the Kennebec, Androscoggin, Cathance, Eastern, Abagadasset and the Muddy, all converging to form a truly rare ecosystem. Virtually untouched by time, the bay is one of the best places in the state to view bald eagles and migrating waterfowl. The unique flora and abundant wildlife create stunning backdrops and mystical views so make sure to bring a camera.
The Merrymeeting's professionally trained crew provides fascinating narration and a safe, comfortable cruise. A snack bar with beer, wine, soft drinks and light snacks is onboard. Guests are welcome to bring aboard food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Tickets are non-refundable, except in the event of a weather cancellation. The Merrymeeting is a 56' motor vessel with a covered lower deck and open seating on the upper deck. Cruises run in light rain and other moderate weather conditions.
Cruises may be cancelled in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions or unmet minimum ticket sales, and cancellations are made by the Captain on the day of the cruise. If the Museum cancels a cruise, you will have the opportunity to reschedule, or receive a refund.
The temperature on the water can vary throughout the day. Please come prepared with extra layers. Access to the boat requires negotiating a ramp down to the float.
