We did the crabbing 101 tour on a Tuesday and it was so much fun and educational! It was the best part of our trip! I've done the salt marsh safari before which is also nice so we decided to try something different this year. It's fun for kids and adults of all ages! The green flies are horrible out... More

We went on a Skimmer birding tour of the marsh. They were very knowledgeable of the birds they use the marsh. The tour included a naturalist who provided a wealth of information on the marsh and how it is vital to the ecosystem of southern NJ.

Captain Travis and Glen took our family for a 2 hour excursion through the salt marsh. Unexpectedly, we were the only family on the boat and we enjoyed a private tour! They are both very knowledgeable, and my kids really learned a lot about the ecosystem of the salt marsh, and we spotted many species of birds. It was very... More

We were on vacation and were looking for something different to do... and something educational too. We found this on Trip Advisor and checked it out. It was awesome! I called on the phone prior to the trip to make sure they had room for our party of 7. The woman who answered the phone was awesome. She confirmed the... More

We are new to birding so this 2 hour excursion was a lot of fun. Captain Travis and Glen from the Cape May Bird Observatory spotted a variety of nesting birds and baby birds, including a peregrine falcon, ospreys, clapper rails, willets, laughing gulls, egrets, terns, and skimmers. Travis provided binoculars for young and old. He also brought "critters "... More

Fun and educational boat tour of the South Jersey marshes between Wildwood and Cape May. Captain Travis and "Bird Nerd" Sam are a wealth of information about the ecosystem and local wildlife.

I was looking for an activity to do with my 80 year old parents while we were visiting Cape May, and this activity looked perfect because it doesn't require a lot of physical exertion. Today (April 25 2015) was the first safari of the year, and we left at 10am. The tour lasted 2 hours which was the perfect amount... More

As Audubon members, we enjoyed the experience of the crew and their "secret" hot-spots for Birding. Will come back for more!

One of our teens is a birder and into Envirothon stuff. The other is not so much... However between Travis and Sam, the level of education, knowledge, and entertainment for all was great. We all learned a lot and genuinely had a wonderful time. 5-star for sure. THANKS!!

Travis (the captain) and his wife (refreshment stand) are the nicest people in the world. I am sorry I forgot the other gentleman's name on the boat that day. The boat itself is open and clean. The ride itself was awesome. Travis' son and daughter were out with us too and they were wonderful too. The right personality to do... More
