As a avid birder in both North and South America, I am always looking for new and unique ways to find birds. Alvaro's Adventures offers just the ticket. Pelagic tours on the East Coast of the US require as many as 8 hours in order to travel to a place in the Atlantic beyond the "dead zone." Alvaro's Adventures begin... More

My husband and I joined Alvaro for a pelagic birdwatching trip from Half Moon Bay, CA. So many good things to day not sure where to start! The boat was excellent. Clean, well maintained, comfortable. The Captain and crew top notch professionals who know how to handle a boat as well as help spot the birds, whales, and other sea... More

I booked a birding tour with Alvaro and was greatly looking forward to seeing some US seabirds. Unfortunately I had to postpone my travel plans and asked if I could have a refund. I was not expecting a full refund but that's what I've just received. Alvaro was very quick to respond to my questions and was very helpful with... More

Went out with Alvaro to the Farallon Islands from Half Moon Bay. What a lovely guy and a enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The information, tips and likely sightings provided beforehand were really helpful. Had a fantastic day and saw loads of birds that the average UK birder can only dream of - Tufted Puffins, Brown and Blue-footed Boobies, Black-footed Albatross,... More

So far, I have been on 2 of Alvaro's tours: (1) a one-day boat tour out to the Farallon Islands, and (2) a 4-day trip to Easter Island ("Birding the Navel of the World"). I was originally referred to Alvaro by my tattooist (an avid birder) when trying to find the best way to see the puffins out at the... More

We had a wonderful adventure with Alvaro's Adventures. The name of the trip we took is Birds and Wine of Chile and Argentina, plus Easter Island. The two guides were so knowledgeable about the birds we saw and they knew right where to take us to see whatever birds we were searching for that day. They were warm and friendly... More
