West Kauai Pelagic Birding Adventure
The waters of Kauai's western shore offer some of the finest pelagic birding and scenery in the Hawaiian Islands. The birds include a fine assortment of both breeding Hawaiian seabirds and trans-equatorial migrants. The best months for seabird diversity are March, April, September, October, November and December, which coincide with the trans-equatorial migrations. This tour is conducted aboard an fully equipped 40' boat that offers great onboard viewing locations. Depending on the birds and weather we might go offshore 25 miles or go towards the forbidden island of Niihau and the Lehua islet.
