Two Pelagic Scrub-Jay Trips:

March 8th (Sun)

and

April 18th (Sat)

$80 each

9 hrs (8am-5pm)

Out of Ventura Harbor, this is a change from previous years and they will now be run on the high speed catamaran Island Explorer. This trip drops off for about 1.5 hrs on Santa Cruz Island at Prisoners Harbor to view the endemic Island Scrub-Jay and the rest of the time searching the near shore and offshore waters for Pelagic birds and locally nesting seabirds.
