      Great trip and Naturalists were exemplary! Thank you.

      I enjoyed my trip. The guides were very friendly and helpful. They helped me see new birds and explained some tips on how to recognize them. I felt safe and I would recommend this trip for anyone new to birding as well as for anyone who just enjoys birding.

      This was a near shore pelagic trip perfect for first timers to get a feel for this type of activity. The guides, Holly, Mikey and Zach were personable, knowledgeable and worked hard to find birds, whales and dolphins for all to see. If you're on the fence about joining a pelagic trip, sign up for a near shore.

      The Gambler is a sturdy, beautiful, and well-captained and crewed ship, I felt safe and admired its capacity. Just right for the number of people and the trip. We sailed a triangle across the inner shelf. The leaders knew the best places to check for birds. On the deck above, Tom and Scott and others scanned the area continually, and usually relayed the news to all. They had the best views. The cabin was warm and there was free food, and some to buy. The weather was good. I was disappointed that the birds were so distant and I had hoped for better views. From the shore I rarely get a close view and was hoping somehow to get more satisfaction. Perhaps I expected too much.

      Very well run. Great spotters (Tom Johnson & George Armistead are world-class!). Friendly, knowledgeable, skilled crew. Really outstanding boat! Fun fellow birders, including several friends. Really excellent overall experience. Highly recommended!
