Pea Island Salt Marsh Tour
This tour explores the salt marshes sound-side in the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge.
We frequently spot ospreys, pelicans, herons, egrets, ibis, terns, rails, skimmers, wrens, and warbles just to name a few. During the winter months this location is particularly abundant with migrating ducks, swans, geese and other water foul. We will tour the salt marshes of the Pamlico Sound and visit the old bridge joining Hatteras Island to the Northern Outer Banks across the now closed New Inlet. This location is also ideal for water quality experiments, salt marsh and wetlands observations and presentations from the Department of Fish and Wildlife officials that we can coordinate. Sediment sampling, estuarine health and federal environmental protection discussions are also a great fit for this tour.
