Thousands of Northern Gannets & a nice Variety of Whales
8 July 2018 - 15 July 2018, 8 days and 7 nights

Bonaventure Island is the nesting site of more than 100,000 seabirds, including 30,000 pairs of Northern Gannets, plus Black-legged Kittiwakes, Common Murres, and Razorbills. Our visit is timed for the hatching of the Gannet eggs, which adds anticipation and excitement to the spectacle. During our full day on and near Bonaventure we may also see Finback, Humpback, and Minke Whales. We'll search mainland forests for boreal nesters: Evening Grosbeak, Black-backed Woodpecker, Spruce Grouse, and Boreal Chickadee, to name a few. The York River marshes may hold American Bittern, Sora, American Woodcock, and Wilson's Snipe. Additional localities could yield Harlequin Duck, Northern Goshawk, Pine Grosbeak, and White-winged Crossbill. Mammals that we will search for include Moose, Caribou, Black Bear, and Gray Seal. Our last two nights will be in the Chic-Choc Mountains, the northeastern terminus of the Appalachian Mountains. The food is great and the scenery simply breathtaking. Our tour leader will be selected at a later date. We will take a maximum of seven participants. On rare occasion we may extend the maximum to ten participants. 

Price: $4195.00 from Moncton, New Brunswick
