BIRDING EXCURSIONS

We do specialty birding-by-boat tours led by experts for serious birders from around the world. We’re honored to do some trips as part of the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival each January but we have good birding on the lagoon from late fall through the spring. Some species are even nesting on Bird Island and in the Thousand islands well into summer.

Tour Leaders Include:

  • David Simpson, a full-time professional birding tour guide and outfitter with many state records. He lives in central Florida and guides in various exotic locations.
  • Jim Eager, a passionate birder, who has participated for years in bird counts. He has helped in research of raptors in the Florida Keys and Savannah sparrow in the Carolinas along with being the naturalist/birder for other eco tour boats.
  • Jim Angy, who can ID the birds even without his camera lens and has the patience and experience to really understand bird behavior.

Some of the habitats include spoil islands, natural islands, mangrove channels, sand spits and the open lagoon. We provide a library of bird ID books, I Bird Pro and some general use binoculars.
