Everyone loves dolphins, but not many people know too much about them! Besides being cute and playful, dolphins are extremely smart and the Coastal Discovery Museum has announced a new boat cruise excursion to teach people more about these awesome creatures!

The cruise will be offered most Wednesdays in April and May from 10 a.m.-noon. 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. The research goals are to determine abundance, location, and individual identification of dolphins in the vicinity of Montie’s acoustic recorders that are deployed at three stations in the May River.
