Private Photography Tour Haines Departure

What to Expect
– Bald Eagle Photography: Haines is rightfully known as the bald eagle capital of the world. Hundreds of bald eagles live here year round, and your guide knows their seasonal movements. You will likely get the chance to photograph an active eagle’s nest (or two!), eagles in flight and even do some portraiture work of these birds.

– Brown Bear Photography: Haines has a growing reputation as a world-class brown bear viewing destination. Beginning in August, the Chilkoot River is teeming with pink salmon, and the bears reliably come down to the river to feed. In addition there are other lesser-known locations, in and around Haines, where the brown bear can be seen and photographed.

– Other Wildlife Photography: Depending upon the season, humpback whales, Stellar’s sea lions, moose, Dall sheep, mountain goats, beaver, and harbor seals can all be photographed from Haines. We can help you find and photograph the wildlife you are after.

– Landscape/Nature Photography: The pristine beauty of Haines is unsurpassed. Mountain vistas, glaciers, rivers, waterfalls, abundant wildflowers, seascapes… Whatever your interest, our guide can take you where you need to go to get a photographic experience that will exceed your expectations.

We booked this excursion via the ship (Azamara Quest). It was a very small group - just 6 of us. Not very homogenous, as there were big differences in photographic equipment (from cellphones to "very good" SLR cameras) and also in experience. But our guide...More
