OC Bay Hopper Birding Trip

You won't believe the variety of birds that inhabit the coastal bays right here in Ocean City! Especially during the "off-season," when so many migratory species may their way through Assateague.  These trips will always feature a guide from Delmarva Birding to ensure our captains get you to the right spots for viewing!

We'll start by departing from the West OC Commercial Harbor and cruising past the bayside OC docks from M.R. Duck's south to the inlet (good shorebirds hiding out there!), then cruise by the Assateague jetty for waterfowl and shorebirds. From there, we'll cruise the backside of Assateague down to near Castaways campground, then back to the harbor.

This trip will pickup at one of our three locations (118th Street, Downtown at the Marina Deck or Pier 23 in West OC). These trips are designed to explore Assateague Island in the shoulder season and through the winter so please dress accordingly. (Temps in the spring on the water are often 10-15 degrees cooler than land!). PLEASE NOTE THE TRIP DEPARTURE LOCATION NOTED ON YOUR TICKET!

These trips will always have a USCG-licensed captain and a Birding Guide so you will be in good hands.

Unless otherwise specified, these trips will be two hours in duration. Only water is provided onboard and restrooms are not available during the trip. . 

Trips may be canceled in the event of strong, gusting winds or dangerous weather. If a trip is canceled, you will be notified via email 24 hours prior to the trip departure. Full refunds will be provided within 15 days.
