So this was the boat that we took our Eagle tour on. A forty foot pontoon boat.
The day started off rainy but by the time we set off it was starting to get nice.
We saw multiple Osprey beginning to build their nests.
And we saw more than a dozen Bald Eagles
I guess this kinda qualifies us as official ‘bird nerds’ now! I need a bigger camera…
Check out the old guy’s face! His granddaughter thought she was doing something nice for the old grump and he had absolutely no interest in any of it! Mr C and I heard him grumbling at the start of the trip that he’s SEEN eagles before.
It was a really wonderful trip. It was also a fundraiser for a conservation group. The Captain didn’t own this big boat but he does have his own smaller boats and offers smaller group tours or private tours, fishing trips and history tours. He was really a great guy too. We had a great time and plan on going back again.
We highly recommend a trip with Capt. Mike Ostrander if you’re ever down in the Hopewell Virginia area!
