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.

Fantastic ride from the bow of the boat on smooth waters and a beautiful sunset. Bob was very knowledgeable of the local avian species and even managed to save a flailing young osprey that had fallen in the water and placed it back into its nest.

Captain Bob was an excellent guide. He knew where to find the birds. The best part of our trip was when we saw a juvenile osprey having trouble in the water. Captain Bob got a net and scooped up the bird. He brought it on the boat and then put it back in it’s nest a short
