Tickets are still available for an educational sunset cruise on Jamaica Bay this Saturday that will benefit two environmental causes — the American Littoral Society and the production of the first documentary about the majestic body of water.

The cruise is a three-hour tour that will run from 3 to 6 p.m. Tickets are $55 for adults and $30 for children. Naturalists Don Riepe and Mickey Cohen will lead the narrated cruise into the bay’s rarely seen backwater marshes, as attendees enjoy beautiful vistas and the sight of a variety of birds.

The Littoral Society is dedicated to studying and conserving marine life and habitats, and protecting coastlines from harm. Queens environmental activist Dan Hendrick is producing the film, “Jamaica Bay Lives!”

For more information or to get tickets, email donriepe@gmail.com or call (718) 318-9344. Details are also posted online at octobercruise.eventbrite.com, but while that site says tickets are no longer being sold, Hendrick said they do remain available.
