Overview

We get views of the wildlife of the salt marsh that people almost never have an opportunity to see. We sail daily from April until October so we always know where we are likely to see the most interesting birds and with 25 years of experience running these tours we know where we are likely to have the best trip. Our route varies daily depending on conditions.

This was one of the highlights of our family meet-up in Cape May. The captain and his partner were so knowledgeable and open to all kinds of birding questions, and the marshes were beautiful. Would take this tour again in a heartbeat!Note: I was with grown-up family members but that was not an option in the dropdown list below. Be assured that it was great for us!

My family had a great time. The captain and naturalist went above and beyond to see as many different species as possible.

This is my fifth trip on the Birding by Boat on the Osprey. It is always wonderful, such magnificent views of all the wildlife that you just can't see from the shore. Captain Bob and Barb, the Naturalist onboard, were so accommodating, friendly , and helpful. The boat has so many large windows so you can stay inside and view the sights, or you can go out on the forward deck area. The bay water is always calm, and you are never far from shore. They offer loaner binoculars if you don't bring a pair of your own. This is a must every time we visit Cape May. Highly recommended!

This was our very first bird watching experience. Captain Bob was the best!! Very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We saw over 30 species of birds and the captain was very considerate of everyone’s viewing experience. We will be back and we would highly recommend this to everyone.

Much better than I ever expected. The knowledge of the guide is what made the event so special. He pointed out and could ID all types of birds.

Saw great variety of birds. Capt. Bob and the "bird guide" were knowledgeable and informative. With all levels of birders on board, they made sure everyone, including amateurs like me, saw all the different species. Lots of fun.

This was an incredibly interesting and educational trip! The guide and boatman were deeply knowledgable of the birds as well as of the waters in which to locate them. We saw at least 30 different kinds of birds. It was a great experience for all on board, from the experienced birders to the novices like me. And if you don’t happen to have binoculars, they’ve got them available to borrow. It is a long 3.5 hrs on the water but they have snacks available (bring cash!) as well as a bathroom on board. I highly recommend this excursion!

This was so fun! My husband is an avid birder and he was in his element. The guides are very knowledgeable about the ecology and of course the birds! They carefully described where the birds were perched so everyone could find them. They have binoculars on board if you don’t have your own. The scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend doing this boat tour, even if you’re not a birder.
