WINTER 2022 : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird trips, Tutukaka, NZ

Postby ourspot » Thu Jan 27, 2022 6:01 pm

WINTER 2022 schedule : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird trips (Tutukaka, New Zealand).

– 8th July (Friday) – TRIP FULL
– 31st July (Sunday) – TRIP FULL
– 8th August (Monday) – TRIP FULL
– 21st August (Sunday) – TRIP FULL

The colder, winter months are when the albatross and a mix of southern seabirds come north up to our area, and we’ve had some real winter rarities show up. Past visitors have included Blue Petrel, Pink-footed Shearwater, 4 Prion species to name a few so there’s no telling what could turn up. The local winter breeding seabirds are also around in good numbers too.

Check our comprehensive website for details on:
– Costs and booking details
– Seabird species seen and seasons info
– Info about the at-sea sighting research project (and how you can help)
– Trip details and trip reports
– Private charter trips
– Why these trips are so special

The best way to experience these seabirds is out on the ocean, in their world, so get in touch if you’re keen for a great day out with some stunning seabirds

SEABIRD TRIP RESCHEDULED
NOW ... SUNDAY 10 JULY

This Friday’s Tutukaka pelagic seabird trip (8 July) has been cancelled (due to weather) so hoping instead to go out on Sunday (10th July) when it's looking like much better conditions. Only need a couple more so the trip can go ahead so let me know if you're keen to join for a great day out on the water with some awesome winter seabirds out at 'The Petrel Station'.
