Wildwood Boat Tour - Salt Marsh Skimmer

Join Capt. Ginny & Capt. Ed aboard the pontoon boat Skimmer. Trips depart from Dolphin Cove Marina reached from Ocean Drive just north of the Cape May canal. This pristine area of the salt marsh offers birding as soon as you board the boat and offers an up close look at salt marsh ecology. Up close sightings of herons, egrets, nesting Osprey, gulls & terns, shorebirds, the ever-elusive Clapper Rail, and of course, Black Skimmers are all here and they’re waiting for you!  Tours remain on placid inland waters and allow you to see one of N.J.'s densest populations of nesting Ospreys. Nearly a dozen nests are visible at once! The 40’ SKIMMER routinely visits these spectacular natural areas.  Cruises offer an up close look at salt marsh ecology.  Your fare promotes a non-consumptive use of our environment.
