Sound cruise benefits new marine center

Staff reportSeptember 1, 2013 

The South Sound Estuary Association will hold its annual fund-raising tour of the South Sound on Sept. 15. This will be the fifth year the association has held its “Cruising for the Sound,” a three-hour cruise offering food, music and marine education on board the luxury yacht “My Girl.”

All the proceeds from the cruse benefit the association’s new marine education center.

The South Sound Estuarium opened in July at 608 Washington St. NE, Olympia.

The interactive center provides an opportunity to learn about estuaries, geology, natural and cultural history and marine life.

The cruise departs at 2 p.m. from Port Plaza Dock, 701 NW Columbia St., Olympia. Tickets are $65 each for nonmembers and $50 for members. Shellfish will be provided by Taylor Shellfish Farms.
