Purpose

The Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island is a non-profit research and education organization. Our mission is: "To promote and foster understanding and stewardship of coastal ecosystems through research and education ." Part of our work is to
observe and document the whale and sea bird populations of NY and New England and to take people to see these animals in the wild.

Since 2002 we have been offering incredible and successful single day and multi-day offshore pelagic bird and whale observation trips.
