SUMMER 2023 : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird tours, Tutukaka, NZ

Postby ourspot » Wed Sep 07, 2022 8:52 pm

SUMMER 2023 schedule : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird trips (Tutukaka, New Zealand).

– 5th March 2023 (Sunday) – only 1 place left
– 6th March 2023 (Monday) – only 2 places left
– 18th March 2023 (Saturday) – only 1 place left

In summer all the local seabirds are in the area in good numbers, the Gray Noddy are back, and the New Zealand Storm Petrel always put on a great show. And as the oceans warm up as summer progresses there's the possibility of semi-tropical birds making an appearance too, so there's no telling what could turn up. It's always a great day out.

– 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

NEW TRIP ADDED : 9th DECEMBER 2022 (Friday)
I've just added a new trip out to The Petrel Station for the 9th December so get in touch if you're keen on a great day out with the stunning seabirds, offshore from Tutukaka (in northern NZ).

There'll be plenty of action from the local breeding seabirds and hopefully the Grey Ternlets will have started coming back as well.

There is currently only 2 places left.

MARCH SPACES AVAILABLE --> SUMMER 2023 Tutukaka ‘Petrel Station’ Pelagic Seabird Trip Dates

Postby ourspot » Wed Feb 22, 2023 8:25 am

SPACES NOW AVAILABLE ON MARCH 2023 TRIPS


Hi all. Due to the recent Cyclone Gabby, a couple of people (affected by the storm) can no longer make it on the upcoming March trips so I now have some spaces available on 3 trips:
– 5th March 2023 (Sunday) – only 1 place left
– 6th March 2023 (Monday) – only 2 places left
– 18th March 2023 (Saturday) – only 1 place left

Most local seabirds are around in good numbers, the Grey Noddy's are back, and the NZ Storm Petrels always put on a great show. And with the ocean being at its warmest there's the possibility of semi-tropical birds making an appearance too, so there's no telling what could turn up.

Get in touch if you're keen on a great day out with the stunning seabirds, offshore from Tutukaka (in northern NZ).

Cheers
