We have great news! We have added a new port to our regular schedule. In 2015 we have several trips departing Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY board the Brooklyn VI.
The Brooklyn VI is a modern, fast, 110' long and 26' wide super cruiser. It is one of New York's largest fishing boats, and is newly repowered with 3 engines allowing it to achieve a maximum speed of up to 27 knots. The Brooklyn VI can accommodate up to 132 passengers. Although we'll never use its full capacity, the boat is spacious and comfortable. Its cabin can seat 100+ passengers, is air conditioned for our summer trips, and is heated for our winter ones. The Brooklyn VI also has a full operational galley.
We're very excited about this new relationship with Captain's Robert and Mike of the Brooklyn VI.
Thank you so much for your continued support of all things pelagic, and we look forward to seeing you aboard.
At left is the basic schedule of trips. You will be able to find more detailed information on our trips on our website at Paulagics.com. Be sure to take advantage of the early sign-up incentive at the end of this newsletter!
Thank you for a great 12 YEARS!
We celebrated our 12th year in 2014. We have successfully organized well over 130 trips.
We have found rarities, and set record number high counts for many species/states, including but limited to:
- Record counts for Dovekies in NY and MD.
- Record counts of Band-rumped Storm Petrels in NY, MD and DE.
- Record counts of Common Murres in NY and NJ.
- Second accepted state record of Herald (Trinidade)
Petrel in MD.
- Fourth & 5th accepted state records of Black-capped Petrel in MD.
- First accepted state record of Fea's Petrel in NY.
- First Western Atlantic Record of Western Gull on a NY trip.
- Second North American Record of Cape Verde Shearwater.
The best trips for me though, is any one that my lovely wife Anita can get out on.
Thanks again for your support of all things pelagic!
