After a morning whale watching tour (arranged by Greg), we joined him on the shores of the Bay of Fundy for an afternoon of fun and discovery. Greg is a former science teacher who knows how to engage people and make the science come alive. My children (ages 10 and 7) loved it, which I had fully anticipated, what I didn't anticipate was how much my husband and I would enjoy it as well. Greg has a contraption rigged up so that you can collect plankton, he has microscopes to get a clearer look at things, and he has enthusiasm about all he teaches. He encourages tour members to investigate under the sea kelp covering the rocks and make your own discoveries. We found barnacles, periwinkles, dog whelks, sponges, mussels, and crabs. We even had a seal watching us for a while. Greg begins by explaining that everything is alive and shows how all the creatures interact to maintain balance in the eco-system. The plankton that is collected at the beginning was eventually fed to barnacles in a tidal pool at the end. He showed us sea anemome and explained that they will eat the periwinkles. Guess what my daughter did? It was a science class come alive. I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour for children, adults, families or anyone with a desire to learn. Wear long sleeves and no-slip shoes and enjoy!
