Bill (the captain) and Chris (the naturalist) were both excellent! They worked very well together. Chris' enthusiasm was contagious. His love for nature was obvious and inspiring! Thank you for a wonderful evening....I am now going to try and begin some study on bird life! Thanks for everything!!! : )

My 2 year old daughter wanted to go on a boa t ride while we were on vacation. After looking into whale watches, I felt a little uneasy about fast boats and long amounts of time with nothing to look at. So when I saw this, I thought it would be perfect and it was. We saw so many birds.... More

It was a great day for kids and adults. The trip was entertaining for all ages. The captain was easy going and the naturalist seemed to know about the wildlife.

Can't say enough great things about this excursion. Everyone was so wonderful - we truly enjoyed ourselves. Our 6 year old was the only child on our particular trip and they really gave her a great experience. Our guides were just wonderful and their excitement about things we saw was contagious. Everyone on the boat seemed to have a great... More

This back bay boat tour is not to be missed. The knowledgeable captain and on-board naturalists filled the 2 hours with fascinating facts and hands-on experiences of all that live and swim in the back bay salt marshes. We learned about the intricate ecological system that protects our barrier islands. Discussions about bird and marine life were stimulating and educational.... More

Took a weekday tour, which was small and allowed for a lot of questions and interaction with the crew. Spent time learning about an area most visitors drive over on the way to the beach. Very low-key. Crew was highly knowledgable. Great for nature lovers or people who want a chill experience away from the crowds.

This was a low key boat trip, roughly 2 hours in the back bay. We could get very close to the gull colonies. The tour guides were knowledgable and fun; they knew their birds and bird behavior. Very enjoyable and informative.
