The Buena Vista sponsored Pelagic Bird trip for August 2022.
Hello fellow birders,
The BVAS sponsored August pelagic trip aboard the 80ft. Legacy out of Seaforth Landing is this Saturday. The trip is booked full and has a waiting list, as does the Sept. trip. Currently the Oct. 1st. trip has spaces. I would jump on those soon!
Fair warning for those of you signed on to Saturday's trip, parking will be an issue. If possible, I recommend car pooling, ride share, or other method of drop off at the landing. I was by this week and the only spots available were out on the street. No matter how tempting the empty spots are in the lots to the east and west of the landing, DO NOT park there. You could be towed away.
Parking on the street is free. but may require a little bit of a walk.
Getting to the land early will likely not help much, as we are the last boat to leave that morning.Most boats left the night before.
Plan to be parked and checked into the office between 6 a.m. and no later than 6:20 a.m. That is when the orientation will start.
We will load passengers on the boat about 6:40.
The Legacy has snacks and drinks. You may wish to bring a sandwich or the like for your lunch.
There are three heads (restrooms) on the boat.
I recommend sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and light layers for clothing (windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, tee shirt, or the like ). Bins and cameras are welcome. Leave tripods and scopes at home.
If you need motion sickness meds I recommend you take them before getting on the boat. I think with breakfast is good, but it's best to follow the meds directions.
The weather forecast as of now is nice, but motion is part of the deal for going offshore.
Any question, give me an email off list serve,
