THE BOAT

The Duke
The Duke isa 44 foot 68,000 lbs Coast Guard Inspected Vessel Built for the express purpose of bringing people closer to the sea.

She is a large stable vessel from which wildlife can easily be seen.

• 44ft long and 17ft wide
• A total of 34 gross tons
• Up to 42 passengers can enjoy the shrimp trawl and bird/dolphin watching
• Powered by two Detroit Diesel 4-53 engines
• Experience the ecosystems of Dauphin Island up close. Built in touch tanks provide personal experiences with many kinds of fish and other animals found in our waters.

Plenty of shaded and protected area makes a great place to sit out of the sun and wind and still see the view. The bow provides sitting areas to watch ahead, where dolphins love to play.

The Duke is designed for groups of any size or age. Whether you have a school group or a business incentive event, the Duke is ideal.

SCHOOL TRIPS
Bring Your Students for the Most Stimulating Learning Experience Possible.

Our field trips feature three activities:
• On the way out, we drag our plankton net. We then let you use our microscopes to view the tiny Zooplankton
• The second activity is the shrimp net drag. The boat is equipped with a built-in touch tank aquarium. After dragging our shrimp net, we empty our catch into the touch tank for you to see! The deckhand carefully removes any dangerous organisms, and allows you to see and touch certain species
• Our final activity is simply observing various local wildlife. We often see dolphins when we drag our shrimp net! We also see lots of sea gulls, brown pelicans, and other birds
