Join us for whale photography workshop at sea. 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. We'll also take a break from photography to drop an underwater hydrophone into the water to listen to live whale songs.

 * Our Whale Photo Safaris are offered on two days each week Sunday from Lahaina and Wednesday from Maalaea.

Departure - Sunday morning from 7:00 am to 10:00 am, departing from Lahaina Harbor on our small group catamaran, Ocean Explorer, which offers open viewing and is a favorite of photographers. This cruise is led by a PWF Eco Adventures naturalist and a professional nature and wildlife photographer.

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 PWF Eco Adventures's Ocean Stores.
