The Osprey Tours

Go on a journey through Cape May's back bays with one of the most knowledgeable nature guides around. Captain Dave Githens has spent the last 15 years on Cape May waters. Whether you want to see hard to spot shorebirds or just learn about Cape May Harbor history, Osprey Tours have a tour just for you.

If you want to spot migrating and nesting birds, take the early morning Birding by Boat tour of the salt marsh. See nesting ospreys and terns, while you learn more about the importance of Atlantic salt marshes. Or opt for the sunset cruise. That trip takes you past local heron rookeries as the birds are returning home for the evening.

If you're more interested in history, take the mid day history and nature tour of Cape May Harbor. Get close up looks at the commercial fishing fleet and the U.S. Coast Guard Base, while you hear some of Captain Dave's stories about Cape May's colorful past.
