Eco-Cruise Expeditions, Junior Naturalist program offered by Captiva Cruises

By Staff | Jul 20, 2011

On Tuesday, Captiva Cruises officially introduced their new Eco-Cruise Expedition series.

The Science at Sea Cruise will be one of five cruises included in the program. On this hands-on adventure, children and adults will be able to try their hand at marine biology. A trawling net will be used to observe and identify some of the unique inhabitants within our Back Bay waters, and information will be collected for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s (SCCF) on going water quality research.

Our Eco-Cruise Expeditions will also include the Shoreline Discovery Cruise, where we will travel to a secluded beach accessible only by boat to explore nature that often goes unnoticed, followed by lunch on North Captiva; the Beach & Shelling excursions to Cayo Costa State Park; the Dolphin & Wildlife Adventure Cruise with SCCF; and the Night Sky Astronomy Cruise.

Kids can take part in Captiva Cruises “Junior Naturalist” program. Upon completion of two of these designated Eco-Cruise Expeditions, participants will receive a Captiva Cruises Junior Naturalist certificate. After their first adventure, children aged 2-14 will receive a $5 off coupon towards the second Eco-Cruise Expedition.

Captiva Cruises also offers lunch cruises to Cabbage Key and Useppa Island, Boca Grande Sailing Adventures and sunset cruises. Additional information and reservations for any of Captiva Cruises’ tours and programs may be obtained by calling Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.
