Bill and Donna Mackay, of Mackay Whale Watching in Port McNeill, are making the trip possible, providing us with this very important fundraising opportunity that is also a chance to share our research in this stunning area.
The trip will be from 9:00 am to ~4:30 pm. Please see slide show below for a sense of how extraordinary the wildlife is in late September in this area.
Check in will be at the Mackay Whale Watching office between 8:30 and 8:45 am (1514 Broughton Boulevard) and then we will proceed to the Naiad Explorer which is moored near the gas dock. See www.whaletime.com for photos of the Naiad and further details about Mackay Whale Watching.
Cost per person is $225 and includes lunch, also sponsored by Mackay Whale Watching.
Maximum group size will be 38 supporters + crew + MERS researchers = 42 total.
