    Bird Watching Cruise: View local birds from the deck of  the MARINER!

    Join Audubon and NMHA on its second annual 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. Optimum low tide will enhance the spotting opportunity. Monmouth County Audubon Society members will be aboard to help us in our quest. 

    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 $40 per person including breakfast (coffee, juice, bagels, muffins, fruit). Mimosas and Bloody Marys from the onboard cash bar.

    1130: Return to Atlantic Highlands Marina.
