Planned Pelagic Seabird Trips

The next Hillarys pelagic seabird trip is on Sunday 12th September.  I keep an email list of people to be notified, plus the details are posted to the birding-aus email list. There is the possibility of a trip in February 2011.

The trip leaves at 7am from near AQWA at Hillarys Boat Harbour and returns by about 3:30pm.  There is a limit of 27 people.  Booking is essential.  The cost is expected to be $90 (more if fewer than 26 people book) and is payable on the day.  Book by emailing Alan Collins (

Alan Collins also tries to organise two pelagic trips each year from Albany.  The tentative plan is for a weekend in May 2011.  The cost is expected to be about $150 per person depending on numbers and which boat is used.  The Albany pelagics have had outstanding species including Black-bellied Storm-Petrel, Wandering Albatross, Sooty Albatross, Grey-headed Albatross, Grey Petrel, Kerguelen Petrel, White-headed Petrel, Sooty Shearwater and Arctic Tern  So hopes are very high for more successful trips.  Contact Alan Collins  if you are interested in these trips.
