Pelagic Trip from Ucluelet, Vancouver Island
Thanks to everyone who came on WildResearch’s first pelagic trip! Despite some rough seas early on, the trip was a great success. Highlights included several Black-footed Albatross, South Polar Skua, Buller’s Shearwater, Pomarine Jaeger, Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel, Sabine’s Gull, and a Short-tailed Shearwater. We saw dozens of Sooty and Pink-footed Shearwater cruising the waves, and we had several humpback whales give us a nice show. For a complete trip list, please visit the Pelagic page.
