Masonboro Island Ecotour-November 19th, 10:00am-1:00pm
About this event

Explore the endless beaches of one of North Carolina’s most magnificent barrier islands!   Search for fascinating life in a salt marsh, catch blue crabs on baited hand lines and discover  natural treasures while beachcombing on Masonboro Island’s remote shores.  We travel to Masonboro Island on a 115 passenger vessel that has restrooms, a shaded cabin and an upper observation deck.  As we travel through Myrtle Grove Sound, we commonly encounter bottlenose dolphin, osprey and beautiful wading birds.


About Masonboro Island:   Masonboro Island is an 8 ½ mile completely undeveloped barrier island that has been set aside for education and research.  Masonboro is a component of the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve program.  Carolina Ocean Studies has been conducting environmental education excursions to Masonboro Island for almost 30 years.
