Birding By Boat from Cape May. We run eco-tours of Cape May Harbor and the coastal salt marsh with up close views of local wildlife. We see many Osprey, migrating shorebirds, herons and egrets, nesting colonies of gulls and terns and many other species as we cruise through the tranquil back bays. Evening trips have the added beauty of sunset along with a local heron rookery. Come join us on one of these special trips.

We were impressed with the tour. The captain really knew his way around and could find the best spots for finding the birds. The naturalist had a great eye for birding and was very helpful at explaining what we were seeing.

I kid you not. Both the Captain and naturalist were engaging, informative and EXCELLENT at spotting birds. I am a newbie birder and learned so much -- so did my husband, and he was "along for the ride." I saw birds I have never seen...More

The weather wasn’t great, but that was not the fault of the tour company. Our pilot went above and beyond to find birds he knew we hoped to see and was successful in finding them! All four of us enjoyed the tour very much!

Captain Bob is the most down to earth guide and knows the inland waterways intimately. Even without the birds, the local knowledge gained is worth the price of admission!
