Sat May 5 and Sat May 12 – Seal Cruise
Successful seal cruises again – 100% for 2018
Once again, the rocks along the southern side of Plum Island from Fort Terry to East Point were covered with Atlantic harbor seals of all ages and several Atlantic gray seals. East we went, past Old Silas and Middle Shoal Rocks to Great Gull Island. The seals were sparser on Great Gull gray seals at the eastern edge. Little Gull Island was once again home to about 30 gray seals, on 5/15/18, and about 4 on 5/12/18 (along with 3 harbor seals). Once again, gray seals from young of the year to mature adults was spectacular as always. Unfortunately we saw entangled gray seals on both trips. Photos can be seen (and purchased) at  https://drartiek-cresli.smugmug.com/Pinnipeds/CRESLIVikingFleetSealCruise2018-05-05/ and https://drartiek-cresli.smugmug.com/Pinnipeds/CRESLISealCruise20180512. Seal cruises are done and we are getting set for our 22nd  year of Viking Fleet-CRESLI local whale watching and our 17th year of offshore whale watching.  See you on the water
