Capture everything from glaciers to whales on this excursion that features a professional naturalist photography guide. Whale sightings are guaranteed! This specialty tour is tailored to engage photo enthusiasts of all levels. Your small group (limited to 14 participants) will travel in a media-equipped shuttle bus and cruise aboard a custom-built safari vessel. Throughout the tour, your guide provides expert interpretation while also sharing tips and techniques to enhance your images.

Begin your trip with a comfortable ride in a multi-media equipped vehicle as your photo guide shares digital images, insightful photography techniques, and a bit about the area's cultural and natural history. By land, at Mendenhall Glacier, you'll walk a paved path along a salmon stream to a remarkable glacier panorama. Some of the wildlife commonly spotted includes Artic turns that travel thousands of miles to nest in the sand, and lumbering black bears that fish along Steep Creek. And the adventure doesn't end there.

By sea, you'll board a covered safari vessel for an unforgettable journey through the pristine waterways of Stephens Passage. Large panel windows open to give you unrestricted views, while your captain skillfully maneuvers to give you the best angle on the shot. This excursion has never had a trip without a star-studded cast. Humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, harbor seals, porcupines, eagles, salmon, or even black bears have all been known to make appearances. Witness Alaska's natural wonders as you strive to capture that "magical moment" in the medium worth a thousand words.
