Southport Seamount Pelagic - March 2019

Make your reservation!!!

Over the years, Southport and in particular the seamounts off Southport have 
become famous for the tropical seabirds and some real rarities - the yet to be 
described Coral Sea Storm-Petrel Is very regular, Polynesian and Band-rumped 
Storm-Petrel, Bulwer’s and Herald Petrels are all on the list.

Only a select few have managed to visit the seamounts. That is hopefully about 
to change:

Paul and I have managed to secure a large catamaran that can take 100 people 
offshore. However, given our plans and deck space, we’re limiting this to 80 

It would be an 18 hour trip going to the Queensland Seamount leaving at 4am and 
returning at 10pm on either Saturday 30 or Sunday 31st March. Obviously this is 
weather dependant. We’d spend around 6-7 hours on the Seamount.

The cost would be $320 per person - bookings would not be confirmed until you’d 
paid. Bare in mind the normal weekend trips where we sleep on the boat cost 

The boat will travel a total distance of around 240nm on this trip.

At this point, we need emails from those who’d like to come so we can quickly 
judge numbers and look at the viability. We’ll make a decision in the next week 
(by the 25th Jan),based on this response.

Please email both Paul and myself:
