Condor Express 31 July 2010 Trip Report & Video
The Condor Express sailed into perfect seas on 31 July 2010 from Santa Barbara to the San Juan Seamount. We saw migrating Arctic Terns, South Polar Skuas, Long-tailed Jaegers and Sabine's Gulls. We also saw Black-footed Albatrosses, Cook's Petrels, lots of Ashy Storm-petrels, hypoleuca Xantus's Murrelets, Blue Whales, Fin Whales, Humpback Whales and rarely seen Baird's Beaked Whales.

We highly recommend the air-conditioned chef-equipped SEARCHER pelagic adventure going out on Monday, Labor Day, returning the following Friday morning for the ultimate birding experience through the bird-rich Channel Islands and to the deep waters off the edge of the Continental Shelf.
