Every Sunday morning (from January 8 through May 13), Pacific Whale Foundation will offer Whale Photo Safari Cruises, featuring hands-on training on capturing great whale images with  digital cameras. This at-sea workshop is suitable for beginning and advanced photographers. You'll learn to get the best results from whatever camera you currently own. This trip will be led by a Pacific Whale Foundation naturalist, along with David Fleetham, professional marine wildlife photographer.

 
David Fleetham’s photographs have been published around the globe, with over one hundred magazine covers to date. In 1991 his photograph of a sandbar shark appeared on the cover of LIFE. It is the only underwater photograph to ever be selected for the cover. His award-winning work has been published by National Geographic, The Cousteau Society and every North American diving publication. The Smithsonian Museum, The North Carolina Museum of Natural History, The London Zoo, Hong Kong Museum, The Waikiki, Vancouver, Monterey Bay, John G. Shedd Aquarium, Maui Ocean Center and the Aquarium of the Americas all display his work. 
 
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 3-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. We'll also take a break from photography to drop an underwater hydrophone into the water to listen to live whale songs.
 
This cruise departs from Lahaina Harbor on Sunday mornings. It takes place on our new raft, Ocean Freedom, to give you fantastic water-level views of whales. Just launched in 2011, Ocean Freedom's innovative design was created by the longtime Hawaiian mariners at Navatek, and incorporates special "no slamming" features for added stability and comfort. Ocean Freedom also has an onboard bathroom.
 
Please note that you are required to bring your own camera equipment on this cruise. Didn't bring your camera to Maui? We rent Canon PowerShot digital cameras at Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Stores.
