SUMMER 2025 : The Petrel Station pelagic seabird tours, Tutukaka, New Zealand

Postby ourspot » Mon May 06, 2024 12:39 pm

The Petrel Station seabird tours SUMMER 2025 dates have now been released for January to March 2025 – you can check out all the upcoming tour dates at: www.thepetrelstation.nz

In summer, all the local seabirds are around in good numbers, the Grey Noddy are back, the NZ Storm Petrels always put on a great show with some impressive numbers (we've had up to 100 seen at once!), and it's always a great game of Pycroft's vs Cook's Petrel out on the boat. And as the oceans warm up there’s the chance of semi-tropical birds making an appearance too (ie. Black-winged Petrel, White-necked Petrel, Kermadec Petrel, Wedge-tailed Shearwater), so there’s no telling what could turn up.

If you’re interested in coming out on a pelagic birding tour to The Petrel Station then get in touch – it’s always a great day out birdwatching. And the best way to experience these stunning seabirds is out on the ocean, in their world :)

The tours are based offshore from Tutukaka, in Northland, New Zealand.

Cheers
