Pelagic Birding Tour

Quick Details


Pelagic Birding in Dana Point

This six-hour long adventure gives us more time to travel farther offshore in search of pelagic birds, whales, and dolphins. Each trip has a local bird expert on board. At the end of our trips, we recap what we saw and make sure that we log what everyone saw as well. This trip is the perfect outing for the beginning birder, the expert, or for anyone who just loves the longer adventure.

These six-hour trips are aboard one of our fast, comfortable catamarans and provide optimal viewing of pelagic birds, whales, and dolphins.

Birds We Encounter

A little bird told me…

  • When a baby bird is old enough to fly out of the nest it’s called a fledgling. Fledge means to fly for the first time.
  • Baby ducks are called ducklings.
  • Baby geese are called goslings.
  • Baby owls are called owlets.
  • Other baby birds are called chicks.
