Celebrating our 18th year of Pelagic Birding tours in 2020!

Paulagics is the sole birding tour operator off the coast of New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. We operate trips throughout the year, targeting the productive waters out past the continental shelf (or inshore trips for specific species such as Thick-billed Murre). In addition to birds, our tours offer great experiences with a variety of whales, mola mola and other fish, sea turtles and more! Check our schedule to find a tour that suits you.

I’ve been running pelagic trips since November 2002. I started running and leading pelagic trips in my late teens. Now I’ve got over 41 years of experience in the pelagic business. I’m still trying to perfect our trips to successfully satisfy all participants on board each trip. One way is to always ask for feedback. Please send us an email or call us to voice your concerns, or to pat us on the back. Tips are not necessary, unless you feel that the trip was so amazing and one particular leader or leaders helped you. They won’t turn it down.

Check out our testimonials page. If you have something positive to say, please email us! If you have constructive criticism, please send that as well. We can’t improve if we don’t know what’s wrong.

Since the majority of participants are repeat customers, we strive to make everyone happy. We take all concerns seriously, and always make sure that we put our participants first.

Afterall, you are the reason we keep doing this! We are looking forward to our next trip, and always love to see YOU aboard!

Though we emphasize the seabirds, our trips focus on all sea life. We take time for whales, dolphins, sea turtles, fish, and anything else that we find of interest at sea. On each trip there are enough leaders for the group size. Leaders are chosen not only for their pelagic experience, but also for their abilities to help you with spotting and identifying the life forms that are found. Remember, you are one of many, if you have a question for a leader, don’t be shy, ask them, and stick close to them for identification assistance.

Thank you, and I hope to see you aboard!
