Field Trip: Winter Pelagic--CANCELLED

Sat, Feb 25, 2023

Leader: Jon Feenstra

We are excited to announce another LAB pelagic trip! This trip is only 2.5 hours, so it will be shorter (and cheaper!) than some of our previous pelagic trips.

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 encounter large flocks of Black-vented Shearwaters, and we will be on the lookout for other shearwaters, gulls, terns, alcids, Red Phalaropes, and Jaegers.

The trip will cost $45 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.
