Hi All,

In 2017 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 Australia.

At present there are a total of six trips scheduled across the following

Friday 27 January (note the weekday) and Saturday 28 January

Saturday 15 July and Sunday 16 July

Saturday 9 September and Sunday 10 September

I am currently taking bookings for all of the above if anyone wishes to
register an interest. Please email me at 
(don't message me on facebook or any other platform as it is too hard to
collate everything across multiple forms of communication).

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 safely.

If you want to know what birds we see off Eaglehawk Neck there is a file
on the Seabirds and Pelagics Australia Facebook page summarising over
100 trips to present a record of monthly seabird occurrence.
