I had made a reservation to go birding by boat back in August of 2022.I have been coming down to cape may for over 50 years for Hawk and monarch butterfly migration and had always gone go the Hawk Watch. This fall I decided to try birding by boat.Something different and I was very happy. Captain Bob's knowledge of the area and the habitat of the birds that live in the back bay of Cape May made for an exciting adventure. I was able to check a few birds off my life list. Among them, foster tern, tri color heron and oyster catcher. I would highly recommend a trip on the Osprey with Captain Bob. You won't be disappointed.
If you enjoy birding this is a must see trip. Captain Bob is very knowledgeable and an avid birder himself. You will see many species exploring the back marshes of Cape May. Highly recommended. It was a blast!!!
