Sooty Shearwater

Field Trip: Pelagic

Sat, May 20, 2023

Leader: Jon Feenstra

We are excited to announce another LAB pelagic trip! This trip is only 2.5 hours, and we have secured a discounted price!

We depart in the early morning from King Harbor in Redondo Beach and we will return midmorning.

We will explore the areas around Redondo Canyon, an underwater canyon that tends to have upwellings of food that attract birds. We will be on the lookout for shearwaters, gulls, terns, alcids, phalaropes, jaegers, and storm-petrels.

The trip will cost $35 per person, which includes a gratuity for the boat crew. Note that we will be on a 65-foot boat on the open ocean, and that there is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the boat. After making a reservation below, you will receive a confirmation and you will be emailed the meeting location.

Currently signup is limited to LAB members, who will receive an email with instructions for how to sign up.
