All Day Pelagic Tour Saturday 31st July

Hi All

It has got to that time of year again when we are planning a deep ocean all day pelagic tour to see what unusual species we can spot off the Kaikoura coastline.

The check in time is 6.00am on Saturday the 31st of July (with Sunday 1st August as a backup for weather). The reason for the early start is to be well offshore for first light.

The cost is $175 andwe can provide a packed lunch for $10.

Blue Petrel Beach Wrecked

Local bird enthusiast Bev Elliot brought a beach wrecked bird in to Gary on Thursday. Gary took some photographs (which I will try and post up this week) and sent them around to some of his expert friends, although the tail feathers were missing the i.d. was unanamous and it is likely to be a blue petrel. This species is very unusual for Kaikoura and something we will be looking out for on our July tours.
