February Pelagic Trip

February 11th, 7:30 AM to noon, Marina del Rey. Join us for a fun and family-friendly Pelagic! In addition to some exciting pelagic birds, we might see dolphins, sea lions, and even whales. This year we are going with a bigger boat to accommodate more people, and a longer trip so we can go farther and hopefully see more. The cost will be $30 per person paid in advance (which is still less than the average $35 for a 2 hour whale watch trip). We will have renowned birder Bernardo Alps as well as some of our own excellent field trip leaders on board to help call out species and make sure everyone has a great time.
