About Pelagic Encounters

Travel with Pelagic Encounters for a memorable birding experience on the ocean. If you would like to see and photograph albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters, then this trip is for you.

Pelagic Encounters

Boat Tours to view and photograph seabirds from Gansbaai, South Africa.

One of the most exciting aspects of a pelagic birding experience is the possibility of encountering a very rare bird.

There are no boundaries out at sea, fronts and winds can cause birds to travel far off their normal course.

Over 50 species of ocean going birds have been recorded in the waters around South Africa, including 16 of the world’s 21 albatross species.
