The 2018 trip will also visit Browse Island (full access) on our return journey and possibly the Lacepede islands if we have time and the conditions allow us to land safely. We have secured full access to all the Ashmore Islands and sand cays. The itinerary and our course will remain much the same as previous trips following the continental shelf break on our way north to Scott Reef and heading west of Ashmore into very deep water before heading east to Ashmore Reef and the inner mooring located close to West Island. Over 16 years the Ashmore has been running the pelagic sea birding has always thrown up exciting experiences and the opportunity to see some very rare species with challenging identification issues. The opportunity for Mammal watchers is also fantastic with some amazing cetacean sightings over the years. For keen bird photographers the Ashmore trip is a must with tantalising opportunities to grab that special shot.
