Oregon pelagic birding trips

Welcome! The Bird Guide, Inc., has been leading guided ocean bird watching tours off the beautiful Pacific Northwest coast since 1994. Our nature tours feature friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable on-board guides to help you spot and identify all the seabirds and marine mammals, as well as learn about their fascinating life histories. Please be our guests while we share with you our excitement and wonder of this truly unique birding experience.

"Oregon's pelagic waters can support some of the most spectacular concentrations of seabirds in the world."

Peter Pyle. 2006.
North American Birds, Vol 60(1).

Few people realize that there is a whole new world of strange and wonderful birds just a few miles off shore of Oregon's beaches. The pelagic birds here rarely approach land, except at their remote and isolated breeding locations scattered around the entire Pacific Ocean. An organized pelagic trip is the best way to see these marvelous Oregon seabirds.

At length did cross an Albatross, Through the fog it came;...
It ate the food it ne'er had eat, And round and round it flew.


Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1797)
