Two Months Until Our Spring Deepwater Trip!

Well, I have had a chance to catch my breath after last month's exciting pelagic, and now I am looking forward to our next trip, on Sunday, May 17. We only offer two deepwater trips a year, one in spring and another in the late summer. The deepwater trips are always interesting, because we never know what might be out in the "blue water". Last year, although we dipped on Leach's Storm-Petrel (normally seen on this trip), we had our first ever Ashy Storm-Petrel as an even better consolation prize. Ocean conditions last year pushed large numbers of storm-petrels up from California, and we had Ashies on every trip from May on. Of course, things could be different this year, so we'll just have to see what's out there.  We have four early registration spots still available, and then normal prices will be in place after these are filled. Come join us for an exciting day on the ocean!
