United States – Coastal Alaska Photo Tour 2022
28 June 2022 – 7 July 2022
ORYX Photo Tours is proud to announce a photo tour designed to showcase the jaw dropping scenery and coastal wildlife of south-east Alaska. Beginning in Sitka, we cruise the calm marine waters towards Glacier Bay, one of the highlights of this cruise (our boat has access to permits allowing entry into Glacier Bay National Park, which are very sought-after). The spectacle of Humpback Whales congregating to feed is something we look forward to photographing, and what privilege it is to witness such behaviour! As the whales do not feed during the winter months that they spend in the tropical Pacific, they are ready to gorge themselves on schooling fish in the rich, Alaskan waters of Glacier Bay where they spend the Boreal summer months. Seeing these whales explode onto the surface while bubble netting, flocks of gulls milling about and adding to the drama, is an action packed and fascinating scene to photograph.
Aside from the whales, our sharp-eyed and watchful crew and ORYX Photo Tour leader will be on the lookout for other wildlife to photograph, with species we may encounter including Alaskan Brown Bear, Orca, porpoises, Sea Otter, puffins, auklets, Bald Eagle, Steller Sea Lion and possibly even Moose and wolves. Our boat, the Snow Goose makes the perfect platform to explore the region, and with only 10 spot available, guests are in for a wonderful experience with high staff to guest ratio. The attentive crew serves delicious meals while on board, using local Alaskan produce and where possible, freshly caught seafood. We have a custom aluminum inflatable skiff to get us close to the action, and with expert guidance, sublime scenery and huge photographic potential, this promises to be an incredible photo tour!
