If you are interested in going on a pelagic to Race Rocks, VNHS is running one on Oct 16th out of Victoria.

On their last trip on Oct 1st they had some Sabine's Gulls as a highlight.

For anyone considering this trip, it is fantastic. I was on the Oct 1 trip and along with the Sabine's Gulls we also had a pair of Golden Eagles, two Western Gulls, several hundred Turkey Vultures, and large numbers of Common Murre and Rhino Auklets. We also had a number of great mammals including: a Sea Otter (!!!!), several Orca, 2 Humpback whales, and many sea lions and elephant seals. Last year we had both Sooty and Pink-Footed Shearwaters. If there are still seats available, it is well worth your time!
