I am happy to announce that we have a pelagic schedule finished. The dates are available here. Usually we would have the payment options ready to be clicked on, but this year we are holding off on taking payment as we are not yet sure of pricing. The reason is that pricing depends on how many people are allowed on the boat, and this depends on the Covid-19 risk, and county rules. Covid rates are decreasing rapidly here in Central California, so everything is looking good, but I don't want to guess at this point. We are likely to have final information by March or April, so we will hold off on pricing. If you are wondering how to pick a trip - we do have a "How to Pick a Pelagic Trip" page.
If you are interested in any of the dates, and want to reserve a spot, please e-mail us and we will put you on the list for that day. Then as soon as we have confirmation of passenger numbers we will be back in touch with final details.
Note that additional dates may be added depending on demand. We are looking forward to an amazing, bird and whale rich pelagic season.
Today the news came out in the US, that there will be enough vaccines to vaccinate all Americans by July. This is good news. We now have a timeline for this major milestone, and we are hopeful that vaccination rates are increasing in other parts of the world as well. Nevertheless, we have had to shift our Cuba tour to December, and Spain to August. Due to the change in dates we may have some spots open in those two tours. This time of fall is an incredible time to watch southbound migration at the Strait of Gibraltar in Spain, with thousands of kites, eagles, honey buzzards, and storks! Cetaceans could be good too on the water, and the tortillas (potato quiche basically), the jamon (ham) and vino are always good. Similarly, Cuba is cooler and more migrant warblers are going to be there in December. We miss a couple of summer residents, but it is a great time to be in Cuba. We are on track for the June trip to the Coffee Triangle in Colombia; meanwhile Hawaii and Galapagos are nearly full but do let us know if you are interested. Also do watch what we are up to in 2022, including our classic Chile & Argentina Birds and Wine. Trips in 2022 are filling quickly, as it seems that there is a pent up excitement about returning to travel. We are happy to help!
