Hi all,

I have set the calendar of dates for pelagic trips aboard the MV Argonaut out 
of Nelson Bay (Port Stephens) for next year. They are all on the SOSSA website 
at: and
 have been copied at the end of this message. There is also information on the 
Port Stephens pelagics on that same page. A link to all of the trip reports for 
pelagics that have run so far on the MV Argonaut out of Port Stephens can be 
seen on the right side of that page as well. 

In short, we depart Nelson Bay Public Wharf at 0700, returning to port 
somewhere between 1630-1700, depending on weather conditions and the number of 
'stop the boat!' birds on the way back in. Nelson Bay is just over 2 hours from 
the northern edge of Sydney. There is a reasonable chance of seeing a local 
pair of Beach Stone-curlews about 10 minutes drive from the wharf too. Cost for 
the pelagics is $100. 

Contact me off-list if you would like to put your name down, or require more 

Mick Roderick
