This is an incredible annual event and even has a pelagic you can participate in to the continental shelf for 220$ and smaller boat trips to Cleland Island for 75$. Daniel Donnecke and Jill Robinson will be guiding these trips. Andy Murray will be guiding a birding by kayak trip also for 75$.

There is also a photography workshop with Jess Findlay, lectures from biologists, events for kids and more.

All info and how to register here:

Sounds great, Mel. We've been thinking of a trip to Tofino, so that would likely be the right time to do it.
Thanks

There are still a few spots open for the pelagics running this weekend!

Might be a good idea to sign up if you are going over to twitch the White-cheeked Starling!

Cheers,
Mel

Here is the results from one of the Tofino Pelagics that ran on April 30th led by Daniel Donnecke

He has also posted some great photos here too:

They had great birds like Tufted Puffin and Black-footed Albatross

On the pelagic on May 1st they had similar birds except no Puffin but they got flesh-footed Shearwaters, Sabine's Gulls and Storm-Petrels.

Cheers,
Mel
