OPT Trips Filling Fast!

I am very pleased to announce that the first three OPT Newport trips are either full or nearly full. This refers to our pelagics on 8-hour on August 18, our 12-hour on August 24, and our 8-hour on September 14. 
Oregon Pelagic Tours is pleased to offer two pelagics going out of other ports than Newport.  
We are hoping for more birders on our Shorebird Festival Pelagic (September 22, out of Charleston). This 5-hour trip is excellent not only for birders with little or no pelagic experience, but still delivers most of the species we see on our longer trips. 
We are also looking for birders wanting to add to their Tillamook County list, or just wanting to go out of a different location. The Garibaldi 8-hour trip was initiated last year as part of the Oregon Birding Association annual meeting. We had some great birds, and are happy to offer this trip again. However, we definitely need more sign-ups to make this trip a go. 
There is still lots of space (including early registration price slots) available on our October 6 10-hour, our October 26 8-hour, and our December 12 7-hour pelagics. The latter trip has had three albatross species two years in a row, can we make it a three-peat?
