Spring DBW Tips

Some common sense approaches to make your Spring DBW trip more enjoyable:

  • Wear appropriate clothing and shoes for weather which can be cooler near the ocean. It may be warm on the dock, but that Atlantic Ocean water is still cold!
  • Carry sunscreen, sunglasses and/or a hat to protect yourself from the sun.
  • Bring rain gear as all events are rain or shine.
  • Try to arrive a little before the scheduled trip departs.
  • Boat trips usually fill earlier than other trips; please make your reservations early.
  • Most trips are not appropriate for young children. Please use your discretion when registering.
  • Be courteous to your fellow birders. Speak quietly and turn off cell phones during trips.
  • Vegetarians & guests with seafood allergies must make their restrictions known for trips that include lunch.
  • There are no restroom facilities on most trips.
