His first trips were chartered by David Lee from the North
Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in which several hundred
offshore surveys were conducted. Birding legends Paul
Dumont and Bob Ake led countless trips with Capt Allan. He
has worked with the best in pelagic birding. Throughout
the years Capt Allan has provided the necessary access to some
of the most significant discoveries in the pelagic world.
