Last NW Pelagic in 2017!

Oregon Pelagic Tours is happy to take a chance on the weather, and offer a 7 hour winter pelagic out of Newport on Saturday, December. 9  We can't guarantee the weather and ocean will cooperate , in which all passengers will receive a full refund, but winter pelagics in the Pacific Northwest are infrequent enough that any intrepid birder who is a fan of seabirds should consider signing up. A similar trip in the 2012 provided views of Mottled Petrel, and although this bird is very rare, this is your best chance in 2017.  Our target birds will be Laysan Albatross, Short-tailed Shearwater (which should be seen in numbers), Ancient Murrelet and maybe Parakeet Auklet.  Hope to have you join us!
