Refuge Island with Seals and Cormorants

Timing and patience are two of the most important factors to a successful wildlife watching trip. Plan your trip according to the season, tidal phase, and time of day. Noise travels easily across water so keep voices down to avoid scaring wildlife away. Use binoculars and spotting scopes to bring animals “closer” to you without disturbing them while maintaining the required 200 yard buffer from shore.
