We had an amazing day on the Osprey! Captain Bob was great...so knowledgeable. He even stayed out with us laterso that we could see more birds. My husband and I highly recommend!
Excellent birders and birding. Boat is perfect for the trips. Went twice ..go morning and afternoon. Bob is an excellent guide.
Overall it was a very enjoyable trip. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. They positioned the boat so all could see the wildlife. I will take this trip again next time I am at Cape May.
This was the fourth or fifth trip I've taken with the Osprey. Each is a little different and I always appreciate the insights and knowledge that is shared. This trip we saw a bald eagle, the first I've ever seen in the wild. A real highlight for me.
Captain/naturalist was very friendly and knowledgeable, even stayed out longer than we paid for in order to show us some bald eagles. Worth every penny we paid. Will go again next year.
The captain was terrific: both a fine captain and very knowledgeable about birds. We saw tons of birds. We had an additional guide who pointed wildlife out to us, and also told us about the history of the area.
I had called ahead of time to say I was stuck in terrible traffic and rescheduled for next Thursday but I still came and just made the boat. I was greeted warmly by the captain. Both the Captain and the guide were very friendly and made everyone comfortable. If there was a heavy wake he slowed down and warned people. Very good observation of the birds in the area and helped us find them and get great views. Loved learning about the history of the area. We even picked up a balloon and learned the danger to wildlife it creates. While I had my on binoculars I noticed those provided were very nice. Great trip and I can't wait to return!
We brought some Non-birding friends and they lived it! Maybe we will convert them someday to join us for another trip on the Osprey. Thanks for a great afternoon
A great way to spend a couple hours. The captain and naturalist are helpful, informative, and make the trip interesting and fun, especially for our son.
The perfect day, weather and the birds were plentiful. It's the second time we went out And the day was great keep up the great work no complaints at all !!!!
