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.
