Whales. Researchers. You?
Join the Marine Education and Research Society trip with researchers - Sunday October 1st, 2023 departing from Campbell River.
Campbell River Whale Watching have graciously donated a trip, providing us with a significant fundraising opportunity and the chance to share our research in person with you.
The excursion will be ~6 hours long, aboard the MV Tenacious III, with highly experienced crew AND there will be two MERS Humpback Whale researchers aboard.
MERS team members will be on board to share with you what we have learned from nearly 20 years of research on Humpback Whales, and to answer your questions. Please note, this will not be a regular whale watching trip. While we will of course view and share information about other species, the primary focus will be on Humpback Whales - identifying individuals, interpreting behaviour, and discussing our research and further efforts to reduce threats.
Cost per person is $350 and includes lunch, also sponsored by Campbell River Whale Watching.
Check in will be at the Campbell River Whale Watching office, E Dock at the Discovery Harbour Marina, at 8:15 am and then we will proceed to the MV Tenacious III for the safety talk and introductions for a 9 am departure. We will return to the dock around 4 pm.
The vessel has interior heating and indoor and outdoor seat. There are walk-around decks and onboard washroom.
Maximum group size will be 20 supporters + 2 MERS staff + Campbell River Whale Watching Captain and Naturalist.
Please bring your own water bottle.
Dress in layers.
