Tour overview

We are very pleased to announce a new and exciting trip to Bermuda in search of the highly endangered Bermuda Petrel.  The trip is planned for the best point in the moon cycle in November 2022. November is considered the prime month to see this rare species as the adult petrels will be returning to their burrows but younger unpaired birds will also be offshore as they look to pair up and begin exploring breeding opportunities.

We will be publishing a finalised itinerary in due course but the trip will combine a series of small boat pelagics with a visit to Nonsuch Island where researchers started a translocation programme in 2004. This has proved highly successful and there should be an opportunity to see this special bird in the hands of the researchers.

More information will be published soon but please use our online form to register your interest as we anticipate high demand for this special tour.
