Hilton Head ~ Coastal Discover Museum’s Dolphin Research Excursions

Event Details

This event finished on 30 August 2017

The Coastal Discovery Museum has announced a unique opportunity for this summer with a Dolphin Research Excursion on the May River.  The cruise will be offered most Wednesdays in June through August from 10 am until 12 pm.  The excursion will study acoustic communications between resident dolphins in the May River.   While researchers from Dr. Eric Montie’s Lab at the University of South Carolina Beaufort visually identify and record dolphin vocalizations, marine biologist Captain Amber Kuehn will share what we have learned about these fascinating cetaceans.
Dolphins are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act (1972).  Dr. Montie has a permit from the National Marine Fisheries Service, NOAA, and United States Department of Commerce to perform this research with bottlenose dolphins in the May River.
Cost is $55 per person (ages 10 and older only, please) and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org
