Dear Birding-Ausers,

For the last few years, I have been organising pelagic boat trips from Eaglehawk Neck (in Tasmania) on a casual basis with Bill Wakefield of Tasmania.

We are scheduling three trips in 2006 on:
26 February,
24 September and
26 November.  

I am opening bookings for these trips if anyone wishes to register an interest.  Please ask if you want further details.

We have run one trip already this year, in February.  It was a good trip and I have posted a trip report on Birding-Aus.  We have two more to run this year on 25 September and 27 November.  At this stage, the Sep trip is fully booked, but I don't have anyone on the waiting list.  And, I do have one vacancy on the Nov trip. If you want to register an interest, let me know.

The east coast of Tasmania is unusual because boat trips get out in weather conditions that would be considered extreme in many other places, particularly Port Fairy, which I have a bit of experience with.  However, Tasmania itself provides lots of protection for the east coast and the boat gets out most times - quite safely.  Cost is approximately $80-90 if we get a full boat.

So, if you want a pelagic off Tasmania to add to your southern sea-bird experiences, please let me know.


PS  For those who registered an interest in the 2006 Port Fairy boat trips, I am working on the lists currently and will be advising people from next week.
