We are just a week away from our Sunday May 12th. pelagic birding trip. We have a very light load with just 23 passengers and five leaders. Offshore sightings have been interesting lately. Birders had a Red-billed Tropicbird.  The whale tour boats have had False Killer, Minke, Blue, Fin Whales, and Guadalupe Fur Seal, and a large Basking Shark was videoed off Orange co. A White Shark seen off I.B. Stuff is out there!

Local fisherman have seen the water warm dramatically in the last week, from our cold winter sea surface temperatures.

As far as I know, no one has yet explored the Thirty Mile Bank so we will make that a target,as conditions allow.I would expect three species of Storm-Petrels there (Black, Ashy and Leach's)

I hope you'll join us.

The regular price is $135 until Tuesday ( goes to late sign up $145 ) for 12 hrs. 7 a.m. to about 7 p.m. 
Please be at he landing, parked, and checked in by 6:00 a.m.
Call 619 222-1144 and ask for the May 12th. Grande birding trip or reserve online at hmlanding.com
