Seabird Boat Trips in the South of Malta

Time to explore the seabird life at the South of Malta!

EcoMarine Malta  teamed up with BirdLife Malta  to discover the seabirds around the South of Malta with their boat! The trip will take us offshore from Marsascala in the area close to the fish farms where hundreds of Black Terns congregate in autumn.

This spectacle is however not easily enjoyed from shore.

September is also peak time for other species of birds carrying out their autumn migration south to Africa, so with some luck we might see other exciting birds. In addition to these migratory species, we should be able to see the locally nesting Scopoli’s Shearwaters and European Storm-Petrels.

There will be two boat trips that will last around 4 to 5 hours each. The activity is open to anyone who is eager to explore the marine environment, both new and experienced birdwatchers and nature photographers.

We especially want to connect young people with nature for a sustainable future. To encourage participation, the activity will cost less for people aged 18 – 25 years old.
