What to Expect
– Bald Eagle Photography: Haines is rightfully known as the bald eagle capital of the world. Hundreds of bald eagles live here year round, and your guide knows their seasonal movements. You will likely get the chance to photograph an active eagle’s nest (or two!), eagles in flight and even do some portraiture work of these birds.

– Brown Bear Photography: Haines has a growing reputation as a world-class brown bear viewing destination. Beginning in August, the Chilkoot River is teeming with pink salmon, and the bears reliably come down to the river to feed. In addition there are other lesser-known locations, in and around Haines, where the brown bear can be seen and photographed.

– Other Wildlife Photography: Depending upon the season, humpback whales, Stellar’s sea lions, moose, Dall sheep, mountain goats, beaver, and harbor seals can all be photographed from Haines. We can help you find and photograph the wildlife you are after.

– Landscape/Nature Photography: The pristine beauty of Haines is unsurpassed. Mountain vistas, glaciers, rivers, waterfalls, abundant wildflowers, seascapes… Whatever your interest, our guide can take you where you need to go to get a photographic experience that will exceed your expectations.

So glad to hear that you had an amazing experience with us. Cindy is a great guide and I'm glad she was able to find you a bear! Of course, they are unpredictable but we do all we can. We were happy to get your photo equipment back to you. As a photographer myself, I know how distressing it can be when you've lost your equipment! Hopefully, you can return for a visit in November to see the world's largest gathering of bald eagles.

We booked this excursion via the ship (Azamara Quest). It was a very small group - just 6 of us. Not very homogenous, as there were big differences in photographic equipment (from cellphones to "very good" SLR cameras) and also in experience. But our guide - Cindy Schultz - was

We are so happy to work with Azamara this year. We know that passengers on smaller ships prefer small group experiences. Cindy does a great job and she knows not only how to take great photos, but where to go to get them. Thanks for mentioning that our tours are for all levels....there is lots you can do with a cell phone nowadays and Cindy knows all the tricks!
