This full day tour can be run on a day to suit. From historical fishing village Port Fairy we head out to the continental shelf, approximately 30nm off shore where the sea floor drops away dramatically.

A pelagic tour is a great adventure and one of the only ways to see some of the world’s spectacular pelagic seabirds and marine mammals.

As we are sailing into South Eastern Pacific waters tours may have to be cancelled or dates changed due to weather conditions.
