Shrimp Trawling Expedition

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - Tuesday, October 25, 2016 • This is an All Day Event

About the Event

This 2-hour interactive cruise with the Coastal Discovery Museum, will take you from Harbour Town Marina toward South Beach where you’ll have a chance to see how a shrimp trawler works- and find out about all the critters that can be found in its nets.  Learn about our healthy salt marsh environment an about the sea creatures we’ll safely pull up in our nets (in addition to shrimp!)  We will explore how various ecosystems intertwine to create the rich food web that provides food for our tables.  During the trip you’ll see lots of beautiful sights and you’re likely to see dolphins at play!  The vessel is a magnet for wildlife!  Once we arrive at the shrimping grounds, we will lower our net and trawl for shrimp.  Then – we will pull up the nets!  We will take a close, hands-on look at everything we catch.

Cost is $40 adult and $25 child (12 and under) and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
