Go on a Pinckney Island Water Excursion!

The Coastal Discovery Museum has announced a new cruise for the spring months.  The cruise will explore the waterways around the Pinckney Island Forest Preserve on board the Tammy Jane.  The 2 – 2 ½ hour educational cruise will circumnavigate the Pinckney Island (Skull Creek and Mackay Creek).  You will learn about the salt marsh, maritime forest, barrier islands, and the history of Pinckney Island.  A naturalist on board will help with identifying any plants or animals that are visible. On board, a naturalist guides you through the beautiful salt marsh landscape, and introduces you to the ecology and wildlife that surrounds us. They regularly see many different types of water/wading birds, and mammals such as otter and deer, and of course, the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin.  As the cruise enters into majestic Port Royal Sound, we learn our islands’ rich history of providing us with rice, indigo, cotton, oysters, and how those industries inform the landscape we see today.This adult-oriented cruise is $35 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767
