Alaska Guided Photography Tours
We have enjoyed working with
amateur and professional photographers and videographers
throughout the years. We are eager to show you unique,
yet diverse population of wildlife and natural beauty that
resides in Prince William Sound. Our prospective is to
approach every encounter with deep appreciation for the
moment! We genuinely love the outdoors and the animals
that inhabit our area. Your guides, both Boone and
Gina have had years experience mapping and documenting
wildlife migrations with their love or photography and
videography. Since the lodge is remote, your
encounters with wildlife will truly be in their most natural
habitat..away from the hordes of other people.
We are ideally located in the
heart of Prince William Sound, with beachside accommodation.
Finding animal life is as easy as stepping outside your
room. And you're not just limited to one species on this
trip! Brown and Black bears may be seen on narrow
beaches below mountainous, glacier-choked vistas.
Mountain Goats can be found forging on their favored low
lands in Landlock Bay. Resident marine mammals include
Humpback, Sei, Fin, Minke, and Killer whales as well as Dall
porpoise, Steller sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters and
land otters, all of which reach some of their greatest
numbers in the Sound. And although elusive
creatures at times, wolves, foxes and the Sitka Black-tail
deer can be spotted by the careful observer, walking along
coastlines that surround the lodge.
More than 220 species of
birds, 30 species of land mammals, and at least a dozen
marine mammal species are found in the region. Bald
eagles are plentiful along treetops and shorelines.
Tufted and Horned Puffins are found along rocky
outcroppings. Among the estimated 200,000 seabirds
that summer in the sound are marbled murrelets, black-legged
kittiwakes, and glaucous-winged gulls.
**Boats are to remain 100
yards from marine mammals at all times and time spent
observing should be limited to 30 minutes. There are
unique and rare cases where whales and other animals will
approach boats, but this is not a typical interaction.
Photo and video are
best captured with a telephoto zoom
lens. Please plan accordingly for wildlife encounters.
