Our signature Monterey Bay trips have been the backbone of seabirding in North America, producing many "first" records. A few of the rare for North America, or California records have included: Short-tailed, Salvin's, White-capped, and Chatham Albatrosses: Great-winged, White-chinned, Murphy's, Hawaiian, Cook's, and Bulwer's Petrels; Streaked, Cory's, and Greater Sherwaters; Wedge-rumped Storm-Petrel; Red-billed and Red-tailed Tropicbirds; Northern Gannet; Brown, Masked, Blue-footed, Red-footed, and Nazca Boobies; Great Frigatebird; Long-billed Murrelet; Crested and Parakeet Auklets. Our twelve-hour Albacore Grounds trip departing from Monterey also sells out every year. Book early! Without a doubt, the marine mammal show, especially at Monterey Bay is one of the most spectacular in the entire world!
The LAST YEAR— Yes, it is true— after 44 years of offering pelagic trips, I am retiring! The fall season of 2019 will be my last one at sea. I gratefully acknowledge the thousands of birders who have joined me, and the hundreds of leaders who have worked so diligently to bring the marine world alive to so many birders. I hope you will join me this season, the last one.
