Dear Birding-Ausers,

For the last few years, I have been organising pelagic boat trips from
Eaglehawk Neck (in Tasmania) on a casual basis with Bill Wakefield of

We are scheduling three trips in 2005 on 20 February, 18 September and 20
November.  I am opening bookings for these trips if anyone wishes to
register an interest.  Please ask if you want further details.

We have run one trip already this year, in February, and I have posted a
trip report on Birding-Aus.  We have two more to run on 19 September and 21
November, but at this stage they are fully booked.  However, I have small
waiting lists, so if you want to be an emergency, let me know.  (Please
note that Bill Wakefield has also scheduled trips on 26 & 27 June 2004 and
I can give you contact information if these are of interest.)

The east coast of Tasmania is unusual because boat trips get out in weather
conditions that would be considered extreme in many other places,
particularly Port Fairy, which I have a bit of experience with.  However,
Tasmania itself provides lots of protection for the east coast and the boat
gets out most times - quite safely.  Cost is approximately $80 if we get a
full boat.

So, if you want a pelagic off Tasmania to add to your southern sea-bird
experiences, please let me know.
