 Flying Fish
 Barolo's Shearwater

Just getting packed for this year's Azores Nature Pelagic. We've got a full boat going out looking for local specialities from Garciosa and then an extension to Santa Maria looking for Whale Sharks.
Here's  a few pics from previous pelagic trips above. 
A Belgium led crew has just returned from the Bank of Fortune Area (which is where we are heading)  with highlights including a Swinhoe's Petrel and Sooty Tern.
