NEWPORT, R.I. â Children and adults get so excited about seeing large amounts of big seals in Narragansett Bay that they, well, blubber.
âWhat we hear most is that people feel very privileged simply to be out on the Bay â even if the weather is not perfect. Aside from that, we notice that small children are totally captivated by the experience,â said John Martin, Director of Public Relations for Save The Bay. âThey canât wait to board Alletta Morris, and boredom is never a problem. Itâs that way from the youngest kids to the oldest adults.
âWe also meet people from all around the world.â he added. âThey flock to Newport, but most do not feel as though they have enjoyed the whole experience without being out on the Bay. The seals help make that connection and people are extremely curious about why they come, what they eat and how long they stay.â
