Hi All,

In 2018 I'm organizing a number of pelagic trips out of Eaglehawk Neck, 
Tasmania. These will operate under the banner of Birdlife Australia. While we 
don't insist on it, it therefore helps if you are a member of Birdlife 

At present there are a total of six trips scheduled across the following dates:

Saturday 20 January and Sunday 21 January

Saturday 28 April and Sunday 29 April

Saturday 15 September and Sunday 16 September

I am currently taking bookings for all of the above if anyone wishes to 
register an interest. Please email me   (don't 
message me on facebook or any other platform as it is too hard to collate 
everything across multiple forms of communication).

As the boat often fills quite rapidly there is a waiting list established when 
a trip is fully booked because, for various reasons, we have people who have to 
pull out.

The cost of the boat trip is in the order of $125-135, depending on the number 
of people on the boat - it is dearer if we don't fill the boat as the hire cost 
is divided between the sea-birders. Because participants come from a variety of 
locations and many interstate visitors make a weekend or more of it, 
participants organize their own accommodation and transport to Eaglehawk Neck 
(about an hour from Hobart).

The east coast of Tasmania is unusual because boat trips get out in a variety 
of weather conditions. The land mass of Tasmania itself provides lots of 
protection for the east coast waters and the boat gets out most times - quite 

If you want to know what birds we see off Eaglehawk Neck there is a file on the 
Seabirds and Pelagics Australia Facebook page summarizing over 100 trips to 
present a record of monthly seabird occurrence.
