Explore the wildlife of Mobile Bay on this school trip to Dauphin Island!

Our field trips feature three activities:

On the way out, we drag our plankton net. We then let you use our microscopes to view the tiny zooplankton.

The second activity is the shrimp net drag. The boat is equipped with a built-in touch tank aquarium. After dragging our shrimp net, we empty our catch in the touch tank for you to see. The deckhand carefully removes any dangerous organisms and then allows you to see and touch certain species.

Our final activity is simply observing various local wildlife. We often see dolphins when we drag our shrimp net. We also see lots of sea gulls, brown pelicans, and other birds. Our standard field trip is 1 ½ hours long. We also offer a 1 hour field trip.
