Bird Watching Cruise: View Local & Migratory birds from the deck of  the MARINER!

Join NMHA on its third bird watching trip on Classic Boat Rides' MARINER.

Starting 0830 in Atlantic Highlands, we will view the resident and migrating birds of Sandy Hook Bay and Shrewsbury River. Important: You must Register to join this cruise as spaces are limited.

The trip should start with a look at the bayside flats at the tip of Sandy Hook, then its a run to the mouth of the picturesque Navesink River. Expect to see Brant, Cormorants, Osprey, Gulls, Terns, Vultures, Oyster Catchers, Ducks, Herons, Swallows, and so much more. Bring your binoculars and join the fun. It's a great way to start summer.

Registration $45 per person including coffee, tea, juice. Important: Bring your own breakfast as due to COVID-19 NMHA will not be including breakfast. However, coffee, juice, water, Mimosas and Bloody Marys will be available from the onboard cash bar.


0830: Mariner Departs Atlantic Highlands Marina PROMPTLY!

1130: Return to Atlantic Highlands Marina.

The Mariner will go where the birds are (water depth permitted), but will start at Atlantic Highlands. The birds, the Captain and the guide will further refine the program on the fly - no pun intended!

COVID-19 protocol: The Mariner will be operating at a reduced capacity of 30 passengers. Please wear masks on board (except when eating) and observe social distancing.
