Hi All,

In 2016 I'm organizing a number of pelagic trips out of Eaglehawk Neck, 
Tasmania. These will operate under the banner of Birdlife Australia. While we 
don't insist on it, it therefore helps if you are a member of Birdlife 
At present there are trips scheduled for the following dates:

Friday 29th January (trying a weekday one for a change)
Saturday 30th January

Saturday 16 July
Sunday 17 July

Saturday 10 September
Sunday 11 September

I am currently taking bookings for all of the above if anyone wishes to 
register an interest.  As the boat often fills quite rapidly there is a waiting 
list established when a trip is fully booked because, for various reasons, we 
have people who have to pull out.

The cost of the boat trip is in the order of $120-130, depending on the number 
of people on the boat - it is dearer if we don't fill the boat as the hire cost 
is divided between the sea-birders. Because participants come from a variety of 
locations and many interstate visitors make a weekend or more of it, 
participants organize their own accommodation and transport to Eaglehawk Neck 
(about an hour from Hobart).

The east coast of Tasmania is unusual because boat trips get out in a variety 
of weather conditions. The land mass of Tasmania itself provides lots of 
protection for the east coast waters and the boat gets out most times - quite 

If you want to know what birds we see off Eaglehawk Neck, trip reports have 
been consistently posted to Birding-Aus.  You can search in the archives 

Note that I am heading to Ashmore Reef tomorrow so will finalize bookings in 
about a fortnight.
