"Pelagic" refers to species of birds which are of the sea or ocean. They
are, as a rule, only on land for a brief period of time for nesting
purposes. The only opportunity to witness many of the pelagic birds
common to the Bay of Fundy is by boat!
We incorporate pelagic birding into our tours, whether they be Whale
Watching or Coastal Sightseeing excursions. Passengers are given the
opportunity to view such species as eider ducks, wilson & storm petrels,
greater & sooty shearwaters, razorbills, arctic terns, gannets and the
colorful "atlantic puffin" to name a few.
If you are a bird watching enthusiast or perhaps just somewhat
interested, I assure you that you will be thrilled to see such species
glide effortlessly through the air, dive into the water for their lunch
or simply swim lazily by the tour boat.
