Six of us joined a very expensive bird tour out to a new tourist spot an hour out if Mazatlan. We left our boats at 5:30 am, returned around 4:00pm. We were also accompanied by about eight true birds who got very excited when ever a bird was spotted. Plus the knowledge they shared with us helped us to enjoy a rather long and very hot day. According to one of the birds we saw 26 birds, in my mind some looked just like house sparrow. Here is a couple of not great shots of what we saw.
SV Dolphin Tales is a Beneteau 361. We have added lots of equipment to ready the boat for offshore sailing. Solent stay, SSB/Ham Radio, Updated Electronics(radar, navigation, AIS, etc),Solar Panels, Watermaker. Liferaft, Epirb, Hydrovane, etc etc. She is crewed by Canadian prairie stubble jumpers.
Dolphin Tales has completed voyages to many parts of the BC Coast and circumnavigated Vancouver Island and is now ready to broaden her horizons.
