I'm planning a trip to NSW, Victoria, and Tasmania in late January/early
February, and am wondering about pelagic birding on the ferry from either
Sydney or Melbourne to Devonport. I understand there is a daytime sailing
from Melbourne, though it sounds like the sailing from Sydney does include a
fair amount of the transit in daylight hours. I'd appreciate hearing from
anyone who has done one or both trips particularly during January/February,
as well as other pelagic birding options in NSW, VIC, or Tasmania.

Thanks very much,
