The seafaring M/V Aletta Morris ferries guests along the idyllic Narragansett Bay during Save the Bay’s seal-watch tours, which treat peepers to panoplies of splash-happy seals. During the 60-minute tour, wide-eyed seafarers nab stunning glimpses of harbor seals through provided binoculars while learning fun facts about the aquatic mammals, such as their social habits and favorite dance clubs. Blow kisses at shore-bound seals lounging on rocks and low-tide hotspots, or rain roses upon their half-glimpsed heads as they break the Narragansett’s crystalline waves. Although harbor-seal sightings are most common in the Narragansett, its waters are also home to a number of gray seals, harp seals, and hooded seals. Though not included with today’s Groupon, guests may also visit Save the Bay’s Exploration Center & Aquarium, which hosts 14 interactive exhibits chock-full of 140 seafaring species native to the area.
Though Save the Bay sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Save The Bay
Save The Bay has held to its mission since its founding in 1970: to protect, restore, and improve the Narragansett Bay region and its coastal waters through environmental action and stewardship. Save The Bay also defends the right of the public to use the Bay, encouraging visitors to act as responsible stewards of the Bay's bounty for future generations.
Today, Save The Bay's staff and volunteers continue their work from their Bay Center that serves as the heart of operations. Its stormwater-management system contains a vegetated roof, a coastal-buffer zone, swales, and basins that can absorb and filter rainwater. Made from recycled steel and metal, the center's interior hosts an array of educational programs for adults and kids. Save The Bay also maintains an Exploration Center and Aquarium, camps, and marine-life tours aboard its 45-foot US Coast Guard–certified vessel Alletta Morris, the 27-foot vessel Swift, or the 46-foot Elizabeth Morris.
