Birding

Birding along the shores of Cape Cod is a common activity for many, locals and visitors alike. While there are many premier spots that can be reached by foot, nothing compares to the experience of paddling through the estuaries where many migratory birds nest and feed. While we can almost guarantee you will see a number of different birds such as osprey, red tailed hawks, common terns, various gulls and many more types of birds, there are specific destinations and times that we paddle that are better than others. Any morning tour is favorable for viewing birds. The next best time for viewing staging and nesting birds is during the low tides, among the exposed mud flats; this tour is our Nauset Marsh South Trail. For the more adventurous paddlers, the Monomoy Island Paddle ventures around protected islands, a refuge for many migratory birds in the furthermost southeastern point of Cape Cod.

If you are interested in spectating the birds while winding through the water trails, we can provide dry bags for your equipment and a little local knowledge. Give us a call and ask about birding the shores, we will be glad to accommodate you.
