We saw a lot of birds on this trip. I guess it is timing. Captain and Naturalist Thomas were great at spotting birds. It was well worth it.

Every season we take a trip on the Osprey and we are always delighted. Captain Bob does a masterful job of guiding us thru Cape May’s back bay areas, and the on-board naturalists (Tom this time) are friendly and knowledgeable.
