Seals, Birds and the History of Prudence Island

Come to Prudence Island for an all-day adventure and exploration of this beautiful island. Traverse in a passenger van making several stops along the way to look for a variety of birds in protected ponds and coves. Grebes, eiders, mergansers and more may be seen. In the afternoon, shift gears and seek out the resident harbor seals, often visible close to shore on the island's southern tip. Along the way, your guide will share with you the centuries-old history of human land use on Prudence Island.
