Whale Photo Safari Lahaina - Pacific Whale Foundation
Join Pacific Whale Foundation for a Sunday morning whale photography workshop at sea, led by Pacific Whale Foundation naturalist and professional wildlife photographer David Fleetham. Whether you are a novice or an experienced photographer, this unique hands-on adventure will help you learn and practice expert techniques for photographing whales and other wildlife. Bring your own digital camera and learn to get the best results from whatever model you currently own. During your three hour cruise, you'll discover the most effective camera settings for our local conditions at sea. You'll also learn about and have the opportunity to use proven digital photo techniques to maximize each opportunity presented by the whales that you encounter. There will also be a break from photography to drop an underwater hydrophone into the water to listen to live whale songs. Experience the combined thrill of whale watching and ocean rafting. Cruise from Lahaina Harbor on a high-tech raft for exciting water-level encounters with Maui's humpback whales. Ocean Adventurer is a sleek, rigid hull inflatable raft with a unique anti-slamming design for a smoother ride than ordinary rafts. Each trip includes expert interpretation of the whales' fascinating behaviors by Pacific Whale Foundation's certified marine naturalists. Whale sightings are guaranteed, or you get a free ticket for a regular Pacific Whale Foundation whale watch. Please note that you are required to bring your own camera equipment on this cruise.
