Each Sunday join local birding experts for an educational cruise on the White Oak River in Swansboro with Lady Swan Boat Tours. The group will slowly cruise on a covered ferryboat through the estuaries in and around the White Oak River and Bogue Sound, including Huggins and Bear islands, looking for resident and migratory birds.

Participants will meet at the Lady Swan Boat Tours dock in downtown Swansboro and are asked to bring their own binoculars, water, and snacks and to dress appropriately for the weather. The program fee is $35. All ages are welcome, though the program is geared toward adults and older children. A portion of the ticket sales is donated to the North Carolina Coastal Federation to support work to protect and restore North Carolina’s beautiful coast.
