Why Take This Photo Tour With Us?
* 2 full days spent ashore photographing both brown bears and black bears.
* Our captain has been piloting boats through these waters for the last 30 years, few people know the area better than he does.
* 2 instructors on board.
As the adventure unfolds there will be terrific scenery (snowcapped mountains and ice), opportunities to venture ashore in very remote areas, kayaking, fishing, and of course, photography. Two of the best bear viewing areas in Southeast (Pack and Anan Creeks) are on the agenda and usually orcas, seabirds, bears on the shore and other surprises wait around the next bend. Our itineraries are flexible and we look for opportunities to be amazed.
Day 1: We’ll meet up with the Delphinus, board, unpack, have a safety orientation and be on our way. All meals are onboard during the entire trip.
Days 2-9: We’ll be cruising the Inside Passage, constantly looking for photography opportunities—humpback whales, orcas, sea birds, glaciers, icebergs, and of course, bears. We’ll visit 2 very impressive bear preserves and have a chance to photograph both black and coastal brown (grizzly) bears in scenic locations, doing their thing—splashing, fishing, fighting, posing. We’ll have 3 very fine meals each day on our boat and anchor in some spectacular locations, sometimes as the only ones there. The scenery alone is worth the trip, but the animals are a fantastic plus. Participant critique/sharing during one of these days also.
Day 10: We tie up in Ketchikan, have one last great breakfast and we’re off to check out the town, or start heading home.
