Pelagic Bird Watching in Alibaug

A unique experience to see pelagic (sea) birds, shore birds and forest birds and night trail in one trip.

Pelagic describes a bird that spends a significant portion of its life on the open ocean, rarely venturing to land except to breed. Pelagic birds may be found hundreds or thousands of miles offshore and are powerful fliers that can remain aloft for hours while gliding or soaring. While there is no doubt they are birds, they have some outstanding characteristics that are found among no other types of birds in the world.
