Hi all,
Thanks to some great work from Debbie Sullivan, we've managed to tentatively 
organise a pelagic trip off Esperance for Saturday 30th November this year. 
This is the first trip organised off Esperance so it's difficult to know what 
to expect, but hopefully we will see the usual albatrosses, petrels and 
shearwaters and possibly something different for WA (Short-tailed Shearwater is 
a very good chance, and Gould's Petrel have been reported from the area 
The continental shelf break is a long way offshore at Esperance, so the trip 
would depart at around 5am from Esperance (aiming to dock again around 4.30pm). 
The boat is the 60ft 'Southern Conquest', which is slightly larger even than 
the boat we use for Hillarys (Perth) trips, so we need a reasonable number of 
participants for the trip to run. The cost is expected to be $120 per person 
with 30 people, increasing if we have fewer people (e.g. to $140 per person 
with 25 people). If you're interested, please contact me by e-mail at 
 for more info or to reserve a place
Esperance is a fair drive from Perth, so we will probably try to arrange some 
carpooling closer to the time for those worried about the drive
