Hi everyone,
The next pelagic trip off Perth has been scheduled for April 1st this year. We 
are doing something different this year - this is only the second trip we have 
run in April, with the last run over a decade ago. The trip has been timed to 
coincide with the passage of jaegers off Perth, and we will hopefully see 
Arctic & Pomarine Jaegers close-up, and maybe even a Long-tailed if we're 
lucky. We are also hoping that a strong Leeuwin Current may produce something 
different, like tropical terns and noddies or possibly even something like 
Red-tailed Tropicbird, in addition to some of the usual species. 
The trip will depart from Hillarys Boat Harbour at 7am and return at 
approximately 3.30pm. As always, these trips are organised on a non-profit 
basis with the cost of the boat shared equally by all participants. Hence, the 
cost per person is dependent on the number of people on board - with a full 
boat (27 people) the cost would be $110 per person, increasing if there are 
fewer than 27 (e.g. if there are 25 participants, the cost is expected to be 
Anyone interested in coming along should contact Alan Collins, either by e-mail 
at  (preferred) or by phone on 9291 4219 to reserve a place
