Following a couple of successful weekends of trips, Alan Collins & I have 
organised a further two weekends of pelagic trips off Albany, scheduled for 
September 2014 and February 2015

The first of these will run on the weekend of 20 & 21 September this year. 
These are the first trips run off Albany in September - this is usually the 
time of year when water temperatures are lowest, so we are hoping for increased 
chances of colder water species, and possibly some early passage species, in 
addition to the usual albatross, petrels and shearwaters.

We've also organised a weekend of trips for the first full weekend in February 
next year (that is, the 7th & 8th of February). These will be the first summer 
pelagics run from southern WA. Hopefully we will find something different (e.g. 
a probable Spectactled Petrel was reported in mid-summer 2013 by the skipper of 
the Albany boat!), but it will be very interesting to see what's about in summer

The cost for these trips is currently expected to be $150/person/day with a 
full boat of 18 people, increasing if the boat is not filled (e.g. to c. $180 
with 15 people). As always, we need minimum numbers so if you'd like to put 
your name down for any of these trips, please let me know, ideally by e-mail at 
 or by phone if required 0424 008 179 (but note that I will 
be out of reception regularly for the next month or so). Please also make it 
clear exactly which days you'd like to put your name down for :)

If there is sufficient interest, I also aim to run a weekend of trips on the 
first weekend of May 2015, and in early November 2015.
