PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND PHOTO TOUR
Boat Based Photo Tour
June 26-June 30, 2015 FULL
(5 day: 3 days/2 nights aboard boat in PWS/ 2 nights B&B in Anchorage)
Combine with our Bear and Puffin Photo Tour for a complete Alaska Photo Tour experience!
As a young child back in the 70’s my family and friends spent a week in Prince William Sound – I still remember that trip like it was yesterday! The lush rainforests, huge waterfalls, active, calving tidewater glaciers towering mountain peaks and abundant wildlife provide endless photo opportunities. I have been back to the Sound many times since that original trip and now look forward to sharing this special place with you.
When Captain Dean gave me a tour of the Discovery some 12 years ago, I thought it was a perfect setup for visiting Prince William Sound. It wasn’t until I did a couple of trips with them last year that I realized what a first class operation they have on board the Discovery. They do things right; the food is incredible – everything is fresh and delicious, and includes top quality choices such as fresh Alaskan seafood. If you need rain gear or boots, they provide Patagonia and X-tra tuffs – the same top quality gear I wear. I knew I had to find a way to work with them in 2015.
I am excited to be working with the Discovery to offer a 3 day tour in Prince William Sound. With an Anchorage B & B (included) on both ends, the total trip is actually 5 days/4 nights. While you could easily spend an entire summer in PWS and not see it all, in only 3 days we are going to see what I think are the highlights!
We won’t just be watching PWS out the windows like cruise-ship passengers, we will be experiencing and photographing the Sound up close and personal. Zodiac boats will easily allow us to go to shore for hiking, exploring and photography. Kayaks will enable us to paddle amongst the glaciers and ice bergs. We won’t be just seeing PWS, we will be experiencing it – perfect for photography!
If the landscape isn’t enough, we will be seeing sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles and puffin. If we are fortunate, we may see whales and bears as well.
For a complete and even greater Alaskan experience, this trip may be combined with my Alaska Bears and Puffin Photo Tour for 9 days/8 nights of incredible action!
