BBC Pelagic Trip, August 2005

The Brookline Bird Club's "Extreme Pelagic" left Hyannis aboard the Helen H at 4 am on August 27 for a 17-hour cruise across Nantucket Shoals to the deep, warm water of Hydrographer and Veatch's Canyons on the edge of the continental shelf and back. We had good looks at several pelagic birds (and not so good looks at others), but the three species of dolphins stole the show. Thanks to Ida Giriunas, Rick Heil and Jeremiah Trimble for organizing and leading the trip.
