Always discoveries along the coast

(Continued)

Capt. Bob and his crew of four are joined daily by 24 children aboard our floating classroom. Yes, we do teach kids how to fish, haul lobster traps and row dories. Mixed in with all the “fun” stuff, we take every opportunity to share knowledge of our maritime history. Facts are thrown out to all as we watch whales, seals and dolphins.

The last ride back to the dock in Newburyport is a bittersweet moment for Bob and the crew as we look at the faces of the children whose lives we know we have touched and think back to the week spent exploring, teaching and opening their eyes to not only what can be done in our watery surroundings, but the importance of respecting this environment and the life it holds. As I reflect on the above quote by Jacques Cousteau, I like to think he would be proud of our accomplishments.
