Join us on a 2 ½ hour Birding Cruise aboard the 40 foot Eco-tour boat The Skimmer - a partnership between Skimmer Tours and the Cape May Bird Observatory. While you enjoy your craft beer of choice (BYO Brew), we will explore the Cape May Coastal Wetlands Wildlife Management Area in the back bays of Cape May and Wildwood, which is one of the most amazing natural areas in New Jersey. You’ll see dozens of nesting ospreys, a number of heron and egret species, a variety of terns, gulls, and a large variety of migrating shorebirds. The elusive Clapper Rail is also a regularly seen species from our boat.
A portion of the trip is dedicated to bird and wildlife research so, if you like, you’ll assist our Naturalist/Research Associate in identification and data collection at an area of interest in the marsh.
As mentioned, this is a BYOB event. We offer a variety of non-alcoholic drinks for sale on the boat and will provide light snacks (pretzels and/or nuts). Although we highly recommend you partake in a craft beer from one of a number of local breweries, feel free to enjoy your brew of choice or a glass of wine. No hard liquor please.
