Ship-Based Photo Tours

Our ship-based photo tours allow us to photograph wildlife—particularly marine mammals and seabirds— and landscapes in areas where access by land or air may not be practical. When considering a ship for one of our trips, our three primary concerns are 1) your safety, 2) your comfort, and 3) does the ship provide a good "platform" for photography—i.e., does it have plenty of deck space for tripods, can we get to and from shore easily, does the captain and crew understand our photography goals, etc. We always take exclusive ship charters for our trips so our group's photographic goals directs every aspect of our daily activities—with no compromises for non-photographers. A sometimes overlooked benefit of ship-based photo tours—but one that is greatly appreciated once on board—is that participants can settle into their cabin for an extended stay, only having to unpack gear and clothing once during the tour!

We're here to answer your questions about any of the trips that interest you, so don't hesitate to Contact Us!
