I put a note on birding aus a while ago about a possible trip to Fiji - birding 
generally but with a specific pelagic involved.
I have now got some information and started to get some details.  I know have 
details a live-a-board vessel I'm looking to hire (not for any personal profit) 
for 3 days at sea and all of the time will be spent S SSW of Gau in areas where 
Fiji Petrels have been recorded in May (recently).
I am not sure of the exact dates - possibly the week beginning the 7th May - 
but there are 8 spaces and 2 already taken. i.e. there are 6 places left for 
this 3 day pelagic and the cost per person would be between $1300-1500 for the 
3 days. All the Chum would be provided and this boat has done this trip before 
In addition to the good chance of Fiji Petrel a large range of other tropical 
seabirds are likely - including Collared Petrels etc.
Please let me know if you are specifically interested in this trip. 
I will also be organizing birding on 2 or 3 of the islands looking for endemics 
when I know when this trip will happen. I guess we're likely to have a window 
of  a week (due to weather in which to make the trip).
The boat would not go from Gau - it would leave from Suva (on Viti Levu) - 
which is very close to Gau.
Please let me know ASAP as i have some international interest too.
