At Shearwater Journeys, we are very proud of friendly and knowledgable  our leaders who accompany you on each pelagic trip. 
Many of them have been leading with us for decades and most have unmatched worldwide experience with seabirds. Some have authored very helpful books about seabird identification. Below, you will find our complete schedule along with the leaders. All of our leaders are volunteers. They are out there because they love seabirds, marine mammals and ocean life.
