Summer Seabird Cruise for Friends & the public will be on Sunday, July 13, 2014.

Spotting puffins on the Annual Seabird Cruise

This is our annual FUNd-raising event.  Unlike other seabird cruises, we offer a personal tour. Talk to the biologists who are doing research on the islands, spot birds and other wildlife with skilled naturalists who are FOMSI volunteers, enjoy finger foods while contributing critical funds to support FOMSI work.
