Dana Point Pelagic Trip- WAITLIST ONLY

Saturday, September 16, 2017


Price $65.00 (Online price is $67.00 to cover transaction costs).

We are excited to announce our first eight­-hour dedicated pelagic trip! We will depart from Dana Point on the speedy Ocean Explorer and spend most our time at sea in Los Angeles County waters. This longer trip will help us connect with species that are harder to see from just your average whale watch, and chartering the boat will allow us focus specifically on the birds. PAS will be providing expert pelagic tour leaders (Kimball Garrett and Jon Feenstra) for this trip to help pick out interesting species. Birds that might be encountered include a variety of shearwaters, jaegers, phalaropes, alcids, gulls and terns. One of our main targets will be the rafts of storm­-petrels that gather offshore in September, which may include both Black and Least. Uncommon and rare species discovered on similarly timed trips have included: Manx and Flesh­-footed Shearwater, Arctic Tern, Red­-footed and Blue­-footed Booby and Craveri’s Murrelet, among others.

*Please note: All tickets for this trip are now completely sold out. If you would like to be put onto a standby list for this event, please send an email to Kym Buzdygon at Kym.buzdygon@pasadenaaudubon.org Thanks to everyone for such an enthusiastic response, we hope to have more events like this in the future.*
