Dear all,

These are all of the pelagic trips that are organised to go out off New South 
Wales, Australia for 1995. They are all non-profit making trips and just a 
group of people getting together to try and see and survey some seabirds. 
Basically boats go out of Wollongong on the FOURTH Sunday of EVERY MONTH and 
Sydney boats go out on the SECOND SATURDAY of every SECOND MONTH starting in 
February. You should contact me or Tony Palliser for further details and to

The boat (the Sandra K) leaves from Wollongong harbour at 7.00 am and returns 
usually between 4.30 and 5.30 pm. The boat takes 2 and a half hours to reach 
the shelf we then keep going out looking for trawler's and currents to a 
distance of about 35 miles usually. The cost is $45 depending on numbers (23 
allowed), the boat will not go with less than 13 people and the trip hasn't 
been cancelled for at least 3 years, it is very reliable. The boat is 35 foot 
long, is fairly stable with good viewing but is quite slow and is quite basic. 
You don't get tea or coffee.

The boat leaves from Rose Bay harbour, Sydney at 7.00am and returns at 3.30 pm. 
The boat takes 1 and a half hours to reach theand may go a bit further out, 
especially with people on board. The cost is $60. The boat is about 60 foot and 
is quite luxurious, very stable (viewing is difficult when the boat is moving 
at speed when going to the shelf and I don't think we would see many inshore 
birds) and very fast. We stop for tea/coffee and biscuits.
