Albatross are only visitors to the island, so you are lucky to see one. Over winter, autumn and spring is the best time of year to find Albatross around Lord Howe Island. They bread on islands south of New Zealand and also islands in the southern ocean. Over the years I have seen seven different species of Albatross around Lord Howe Island. Sea to Summit Expeditions do regular sea bird tours on MV ” Noctiluca” down to Balls pyramid and back around the Island.
