This is an update regarding Shearwater Journeys' pelagic trip to the FARALLON ISLANDS, August 7, 2011. This trip is SOLD OUT. Quite a few birders have contacted me regarding this trip. The United States Coast Guard limits the number of people on party boats. Regretfully, we cannot add anyone to this trip. Every year, this extremely successful trip sells out. We have a 100% success rate in finding TUFTED PUFFINS and have great views of them. See our trip report from last year, where the surprise of the day was a group of KILLER WHALES.
However, opportunities do exist. On many of our Half Moon Bay departures, we see the Farallon Islands from a distance. And, on many of the Half Moon Bay trips, we also see TUFTED PUFFINS.
Spaces are still available on the following Half Moon Bay departures: JULY 30 & 31; AUGUST 1; SEPTEMBER 16, 17, 18, 19; OCTOBER 2, 10, 15; NOVEMBER 22. Some of these trips are close to selling out. Please book as soon as possible. We have many, excellent fall trips available.
Alternately, if you would like to book our AUGUST 5 FARALLON ISLANDS trip for 2012 at this time, you may do so by sending a check for $157 to Shearwater Journeys, Inc., PO Box 190, Hollister, CA 95024.

Tufted Puffins forever,
