“Incredibly Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Captain Ed and Ginny were both entertaining and fun to learn from. We were able to spot a few great blue herons, egrets, red tailed hawks and some other bird I forget the name of. Can't wait to come back next year.

“Learn from the Wildlife Experts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed The Skimmer - Salt Marsh Safari. The guides were Cape May natives who were extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved the marshes and the wildlife found there. Plenty of time was taken to get close to a wide variety of birds. At one point, a guide pulled aboard a net full of seaweed and mud and showed us many fascinating creatures which made their homes on the bottom of a shallow marsh.

“An Enjoyable Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

I would highly recommend this trip for both young and old alike. Photo opportunities were excellent as the guides made sure all creatures spotted were put in the best possible orientation for photo opportunities. The trip was also ECO educational and of interest both for children and adults. I plan on taking another marsh cruise in the Spring in search of different bird species.

“Enjoyable & Educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

Photography club rental resulted in seeing quite a nice assortment of birds and turtles. The team got us as close as possible to the action. They shared information about the various species we saw. They also conducted an ecology orientation on the creatures in the marsh that points out the diversity of system. I thoroughly enjoyed the two hour trip as I believe all members of our group did.

“Outstanding Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

This two-hour tour of the salt marshes was the highlight of our trip to the Cape May area. The guides were exceptionally knowledgeable concerning the birds, wildlife and eco-systems of the area and presented information in a very engaging way. I felt that they put a lot of effort in ensuring that we had a good experience. The guides clearly enjoyed what they were doing and we were a little late returning as they found more for us to look at. Binoculars were provided; it would be a good idea to bring your own camera.
