North Bay Boat Trip – November 16

NOTE: This trip is now FULL but you may sign up on the waiting list. 

Join Dolphin Charters and GGAS to explore northern San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Bay, home to thousands of wintering birds.

Led by GGAS birding instructor Bob Lewis, we’ll cruise from Berkeley through northern SF Bay into San Pablo Bay. Leaving from the Berkeley Marina, we will proceed along the old Berkeley ferry pier to see what’s shaking, turn north and head over to Southhampton Shoal, and then on to the Richmond Inner Harbor and Brooks Island and its breakwater.

Leaving this area we’ll travel to Red Rock before passing under the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge and our views of East and West Brothers Islands. This trip offers water bird and marine mammal viewing in stunning locations, many of which can only be seen by boat.  In addition to the many ducks, loons, pelicans and gulls that come into the Bay for the winter, we can also expect to see resident cormorants, grebes, terns and murres.
