May 20 trip full!

We had gotten away from offering pelagic trips in the spring, as the past few had been difficult to fill. Apparently it was time to change that, or perhaps people were interested in another short trip (our typical trips are 8 to 12 hours), but in any case, I am very happy to announce that our 6 hour trip scheduled for May 6 is full.  If you are interested in a shorter pelagic, please register for the Cape Arago Shorebird Festival, and sign up for our 5 hour pelagic on Saturday, September 2nd. Other trips can be found on the Schedules page. Hope to see you on the water!

Intro to Pelagic Birding -- Coming in May!

Oregon Pelagic Tours is very happy to present a new tour in 2017.  The goal is to spot seabirds as they nest along our shores, migrate through our waters as they head north to their breeding grounds, or visit our offshore waters to feed.  This 6 hour spring tour is perfect for beginners and experienced pelagic birders alike. We will cruise to Yaquina Head to observe the seabirds breeding there, then head out to sea deep enough to observe the impressive albatross.  Come join us!

2017 Winter Pelagic cancellation

The January 28 winter pelagic did not generate sufficient registration or sign-up to go.  A number of people were apparently considering going, however within two weeks before the departure date (our normal time frame for making decisions on whether or not to go out), only one person had made their payment.  Some late interest gave us hope that the trip would go, but it was a case of too little, too late. So please, if you think you might like to go out with us, please email me with your contact information, and mail in your payment in a timely manner.  Oregon Pelagic Tours is proud to provide trips off the Oregon Coast, and hopes to be able to do so for some time to come.
