Launch from: Near the north boat ramp at John Wayne Marina
Price: $70.00
Trip Leader: Barb Blackie

This 3-hour boat trip aboard the M/V RED HEAD will cruise around Protection Island, a U.S. National Wildlife Refuge. Marine birds and mammals will be the targets of this trip, and we should see Rhinoceros Auklets, Long-tailed Ducks, Common Murres, loons, cormorants, gulls, harbor seals, and possibly porpoises, elephant seals, and sea lions. The RED HEAD is an enclosed, comfortable boat (although the best wildlife viewing is done out in the weather), and snacks and beverages are available for a small price. This trip is limited to 50 persons and will probably sell out rapidly, so get your reservations early.
Note: Do not bring scopes or tripods.
