Birding Cruise: Channel Islands and Beyond -
We Go Where the Birds Take Us - July 16, 2017
This 12 hour , offshore, deep water, pelagic trip allows you to get out to the offshore waters beyond the reach of most day trips. You will have a chance to see a number of outstanding pelagic birds and marine mammals. Our intention is to go south from Ventura towards San Nicolas Island and the banks, knolls, canyons and other productive features in the area. This will give us a chance to look for sought after species like Red-billed Tropicbird, Least Storm -Petrel, Leach's Storm-Petrel, Townsend Storm-Petrel, Guadalupe Murrelet and Craveri's Murrelet. We will decide what our offshore destination will be after reviewing oceanographic conditions at the time of the trip, which will help determine where the birds and other marine life may be present of concentrated.
