Guided barnstable harbor tour
For those not interested in catching fish, Capt. Avery can take you on a Guided Barnstable Harbor Tour. Bird Watchers, Nature Lovers and Tourists enjoy the chance sit under an Osprey Nest, visit a Common Tern Nursery, watch Great Blue Herons flying low across the marsh, see Gannets dive-bomb their prey, or the local Oyster Catchers with their orange bills skimming across the water.
Most will agree that Barnstable Harbor’s 10′-12′ tidal range make a trip around the harbor an adventure. Bring your binoculars, lunch, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat. Let Capt. Avery share with you her local knowledge and love for Barnstable Harbor. Learn about Sandy Neck’s shifting sands, coastal processes, and some of the history of Barnstable Harbor. See where the famous Barnstable Harbor oysters are grown. Learn about the natural shellfish as well as those that are farmed.
