We offer pelagic trips from Hatteras, North Carolina to explore our near shore, dynamic ecosystem formed by the combination of the Continental Shelf edge & the Gulf Stream Current.
Our trips on May 23 & 28 are full (3/19/18). There are still plenty of dates to choose from! Read the Spring Blitz Primer at the blog

SWINHOE’S STORM-PETREL June 9, 2017!! Our third record here in early June. Report and images HERE!!
The 2017 Spring Blitz found a great diversity of seabirds despite more westerly wind than usual! We ended up with 12 species of tubenose, including Trindade & Fea’s Petrel plus European Storm-Petrel! We also saw Red-billed Tropicbird, Brown Booby, Brown Noddy, and many Bridled Terns, which are usually more scarce in spring. Plus all three jaegers and a South Polar Skua! Not to mention the NINE species of cetaceans…
