Past Events

NE Aquarium Whale Watch
Welcome aboard the Voyager III, New England Aquarium's premier whale watching vessel. Experience the amazing diversity of life located so close to our city, including interactions with naturalists and educators onboard. Take a ride into Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for a multitude of marine life; last semester we were able to see two beautiful and majestic humpback whales and one calf.

Boston Harbor Islands Tour

When the weather becomes nice, come join the MSA on a tour of the Harbor Islands. This 17-island state park is part of the 34-island Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area. They are a wonderful natural resource, only 45 minutes by ferry from downtown Boston. We can take a boat right from the Warf to many different islands. There we can walk, picnic and take a tour to see the intertidal zone marine sealife.(Saturday, October 4, 2008)
