Texas Pelagics"It's Not Just Birding, It's and Adventure"
The First Dedicated Texas Pelagic Trips 1961 – 1993
GROUP 1): TX PELAGIC TRIPS ORGANIZED FROM 1961 TO 1993.
Before the beginning of regularly scheduled trips run by Peake and Elwonger in 1994 there were a number of people and organizations that planned and ran dedicated pelagic trips. The table below list as many of these trips as I’ve been able to uncover, and I believe that I have most or all of them listed here.
