Description

CRESLI seal walks will take place between November and May. Please note that weather will play a significant role in determining the seal walk schedule. Please call CRESLI at (631) 319-6003 for schedule changes and cancellations. The walks are approximately 1.2 miles round trip and take about 1 to 2 hours. These walks are suitable for children, but soft sand makes it unsuitable for strollers.

Please be prepared for the weather, i.e., wear warm clothing in layers. Hats, gloves, warm shoes, are also recommended, as are cameras and binoculars. Check the weather for Westhampton Beach and assume that the winds will produce wind chill. It’s better to be a more-on, than a less-on, i.e., having more layers than you need is the right thing.
