Sunset cruise for marine education

Catalog #1308 was once again sighted off St. Augustine Beach on Jan. 24, 2024. She's a one-year-old right whale who's been described as being newly independent.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla — Sunset Cruise for a Cause raises funds for the Florida Water Warriors, with a mission to provide equitable marine science education for all. Sunset Cruise for a Cause is on Saturday, April 27th from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., departing from the Camachee Cove Yacht Harbor in St. Augustine.

“Florida Water Warriors believes that every child deserves to share in the wondrous experience that is marine science,” shares Jadick, who also runs Florida Water Tours and Floating Food Co. “We provide science field trips that allow kids to actually be a scientist for a day. These hands-on experiences build confidence, create an understanding of the world, and show children the importance of a well-balanced and protected ecosystem.”
