Coastal Discoveries - Captains and Crew
On the water summer marine education program.


Captain Bob Bishop has grown up on the water and is excited to be taking over as the captain aboard the Island Time. He had 16 years experience as a captain for Captains Fishing Parties and has worked for both the Newbury and Salisbury Harbormaster for many years prior to that. He brings a love of the ocean and an enthusiasm for teaching the next generation to respect and appreciate the marine environment. He is excited for a wonderful 2023 season aboard the Island Time.



Beth has been with the program for 35 years now and is enjoying her role of Program Director!  Beth attended Lesley College and Mount Ida College where she studied Early Childhood Development and Art Therapy.  Beth is a licensed marine operator, and is CPR and first aid certified.  When not aboard the Island Time, Beth can be found on the beach with her 19 year-old daughter Kailey and their newfoundland dog named Happy, or up to her neck in seashells.  Yes, she sells seashells down by the seashore and you can find out more about this venture at www.anislandgirl.com

Whether he is on the boat or on the beach, he is always having fun!
