Sacramento Audubon Society is sponsoring our annual pelagic trip off the coast of San Francisco to the Farallon Islands. This will be the 29th year SAS has sponsored this trip, and every trip is different! We’ll travel out the under the Golden Gate and cruise around Southeast Farallon Island, one of San Francisco’s “desert islands” and part of the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. Time permitting, we will go out to the continental shelf.
This a great trip to see new birds to add to your life list. We will have several experts on board to help spot and identify birds. We should see many species that are usually only seen offshore or as a tiny speck in your scope from the shore! Highlights from previous trips include Tufted Puffin, Cassin’s and Rhinoceros Auklets, Pigeon Guillemot, Black-Footed Albatross, Brown and Blue-footed Booby, Northern Gannet, Sooty Shearwater, three species of cormorants, and Northern Fulmar. Join us and discover for yourself!
A naturalist will give a brief pre-departure presentation and will be with us all day to answer questions and provide information on the Islands and the wildlife. We will be going out on the Outer Limits. The trip will last approximately 8 hours, departing out of Sausalito promptly at 8:00 am and returning about 3:30 pm. The pre-trip presentation starts promptly at 7:30 am. This trip is limited to the first 25 people that sign up to ensure everyone has plenty of room, so send your reservation and check early to reserve your spot. Note: reservations are not confirmed until payment is received. The trip cost is $115 per person. Sign up deadline is July 1.
