Bar Harbor Pelagic 2019

Calendar Next session starts Sep 14, 2019 at 6 am

Members: $135 Nonmembers: $175

Maine Audubon’s annual fall pelagic trip out of Bar Harbor has long been a must-do outing for the region’s birders. The trip is so eagerly anticipated because of a great boat, great camaraderie, and, of course, great sightings of birds and marine mammals!

Past trips have encountered all three jaeger species, both Great and South Polar Skuas, thousands of shearwaters and storm-petrels, gannets, puffins, Razorbills, and Common Murres. Beyond birds, the marine mammal and fish show can be equally stunning with six different whale species, porpoises and dolphins, gray seals, and schools of tuna seen over the years.

Birds of Casco Bay Boat Trip

Please meet at 95 Main St., Freeport by the L.L. Bean Boot by the Flagship Store entrance. The shuttle bus will pick people up at 9 am, so please arrive by 8:30 to allow time for parking and gathering.

Thank you!

In conjunction with the L.L. Bean Freeport Birding Festival, we are offering two trips with Captain Peter Milholland to explore the bird life around Casco Bay.

Our tentative route will leave from Freeport Town Landing and head towards Sister Island, looping around towards Goose Island then southward towards the Goslings and Irony Island. Then we'll pass between Whaleboat Island and Little Whaleboat Island (if time permits) on our way towards Green Island, or cut across the bay southwesterly from the Goslings directly towards Green Island. Our route may change based on the birds (and other sealife) we encounter.

About our captain: Captain Peter Milholland, principal owner and operator of Seacoast Tours of Freeport, is an experienced, professional mariner and marine educator with over twenty-five years of expertise in developing and maintaining marine educational programs. Peter wants to pass his knowledge of Casco Bay on to others and he states, “Seacoast Tours of Freeport is a way for locals and visitors to directly experience the spectacular beauty and wonders of Casco Bay.”
