I organise pelagic boat trips from the Hillarys Boat Harbour to look for seabirds between late June and early September. The next trip is on Sunday 12th September. There is a maximum of 27 people on each trip. The cost depends on how many people actually go, and is subject to change if costs increase. The expected cost is $100. Email Alan Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.

The cost depends on how many people actually go, and is subject to change if costs increase. The cost is expected to be $150. Email Alan Collins at email@example.com to reserve a place.
