The Pacific Rim Explorer 2021

 

BACK AGAIN FOR 2021

 

ABOUT THIS TRIP:

 

This trip is just a great way start April and kickstart your season’s wildlife photography! This exciting instructional photo tour focuses on the spectacular coastal wilderness in the Barkley Sound region on the western side of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We begin the trip with two nights in beautiful Ucluelet, BC, including a full-day of professional photography instruction. Then we board the Passing Cloud (a 70-foot classic wooden schooner) and spend 5 full days (one more than the 2019 version of this trip) navigating more than 300 islands and islets in the southern portion of Pacific Rim National Park. And…YES, we will be spending time in the famous Broken Group of islands!

 

Our targeted photographic subjects include Black Bears, Sea Otters, both Grey and Humpback Whales, Stellar Sea Lions, countless species of seabirds, and both land- and seascapes of unsurpassed beauty!

 

If you think of this photo tour as a one-of-a-kind “floating photography workshop” mixing great subject matter, top-notch photography instruction, and absolute first-class accommodation (and food!) in a beautiful wooden schooner you’d be on the right track!
