A cruise around the largest Great Egret and Great Blue Heron rookery in the U.S. Great Lakes
Did you know that the egrets and herons that use the West Sister Island NWR rookery travel an 18 mile round trip, just to feed their young?
Learn more on a sunset cruise around West Sister Island on the Jet Express. This unique experience will highlight the largest Great Blue Heron and Great Egret rookery in the U.S. Great Lakes! Researchers from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Ohio Department of Natural Resources will be on board to tell you more about the rookery.
West Sister Island National Wildlife Refuge is a designated wilderness area... That means that access to the island is by permit only. It also means that maintenance crews can only use hand tools on the island!
The ferry boards at 6:45pm in Port Clinton, Ohio and will return by 9:00pm. Hors-d'oeuvres and cash bar will be on board.
