Come join the staff at Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours, on a discovery birding boat cruise of Masonboro Island and Bradley Creek. Guided eco-cruises are educational boat tours designed to increase conservation awareness about local wildlife and sensitive coastline habitats in New Hanover County. Topics explained during the boat ride will include: salt marsh function, wetland plants, and strong emphasis on shorebird/water bird ecology and identification. Birding tours are best when scheduled at low tide – See our favorite tide chart for Wrightsville Beach.
Common Species are: Brown Pelican, Terns, Gulls, Willets, American Oystercatcher, Herons, and Black skimmers.
Guided Birding Tours aboard the M/V Shamrock can get you up-close to the Ballerina of the salt-marsh, the Black Skimmer.
