I don't have a bird list for the trip or the area. The only other photo I have seen is of a Shy Albatross.

It is a Killer Whale watching trip, so I don't think there is any chumming. The cost is high ($350), but quite a bit goes towards the research. I have yet to see Killer Whales so this sounds like a fairly certain way of seeing them.

Thanks Frank

Do you have a list of the species seen on the Bremer upwelling? It would be interesting to see how it compares to the list seen on the Albany pelagics - to know what additional species might be attracted to the feeding bonanza.

Regards, Laurie
