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 

We are jointly scheduling three trips in 2007 on:
25 February, 
30 September and 
25 November. 

Bill is also looking at running one or two trips over the Queen's birthday 
weekend in June.

We are 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 24 September and 26 November.  At this stage, I have one 
vacancy for the Sep trip but the Nov trip is fully booked.  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 
such as Port Fairy (where I have a bit of experience also).  The land mass 
of Tasmania itself provides lots of protection for the east coast waters 
and the boat gets out most times - quite safely. 

Cost is approximately $100-120 if we get a full boat.

If you want to know what birds we see off Eaglehawk Neck, we always post 
trip reports on Birding-Aus.  You can search for the last 10 years worth 
in the archives at

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