From October through April, Save The Bay offers seal watching and nature tours in Newport and Westerly aboard their education vessels M/V Alletta Morris and M/V Elizabeth Morris. Expert guides and binoculars give visitors an up close and educational view of these seasonal marine visitors. A Newport tradition for the past 12 years, Seal Watch Tours motor through historic Newport Harbor and view seals on the rocks off of Rose Island and the Newport Bridge. Choose from a one-hour seal watch or a two-hour seal watch and lighthouse tour. Save The Bay and the Stonington Historical Society have recently teamed up for 90-minute seal watch and nature cruises, venturing down the Pawcatuck River and into Little Narragansett Bay to discover the coastal history, winter wildlife, and environmental issues in the region.

We took the tour that departed from Newport, specifically from the pier near the Wyndham Long Wharf Inn. The tours generally run from November, when the seals arrive from the north, through April, when they leave to head back home, so you have to wait a while for the next tour.
