Further info about the tour

Boat trip off Peniche cost and Berlenga’s archipelago (4 to 10 miles) to watch and photograph seabirds. During the trip we will do several stops to launch chum and photograph. We shall stop at Berlenga Island for around 3 hours.

These boat trips for about 20 people are excellent opportunities to photograph seabirds very closely. The boat, with a length of 12/15m is very stable allowing you to photograph from all over the boat.

At sea, the species more frequently include the Gannet, Great, Cory’s, Manx, Balearic and Sooty shearwaters, Great, Pomarine and Artic Skua, Storm Petrel, various tern species, Razorbill and, with luck, a Guillemot.

In the island, the residents are Peregrine, Shag, Yelow-leged Gull, Black Redstart, but the most interesting is the diversity of birds not resident that turn up in autumn.
