Humboldt Baykeeper offers free, natural history tours of Humboldt Bay every weekend this summer.


Bay Explorations tours are informative excursions on Humboldt Bay led by knowledgeable volunteer docents trained in the ecology and history of the local watershed. The Baykeeper, a 25-foot Boston whaler, fits about six participants for these hourlong adventures.


”Getting out on the bay is a great way to spend a morning with family or friends, not to mention the best opportunity to see firsthand the waves and wildlife that make this place special,” said Vanessa Vasquez, programs coordinator for Humboldt Baykeeper. “Children of all ages will enjoy the chance to cruise on the Baykeeper and experience the magic of Humboldt Bay.”


Call 268-8897 for reservations and more information about Saturday and Sunday morning tours departing at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.


Humboldt Baykeeper works to safeguard coastal resources for the health, enjoyment and economic strength of the Humboldt Bay community through education, scientific research and enforcement of laws to fight pollution.
