Osprey Banding Tour

Book now!

A Cape Water Tours and Taxi Exclusive!

In the early summer, our Osprey Banding Eco Tours, which take the place of our regular Eco Tours, will present a rare opportunity for our passengers. Captain Steve takes us to osprey nesting platforms where he will place identification tags on the osprey fledglings before they begin to fly. This practice does not hurt the birds and is done specifically to gather information about the birds such as migration patterns, life span and behaviors. These opportunities are few as the optimal time to band these magnificent birds is when they are 7-8 weeks old.
