We thought that Peter did an excellent job introducing us to whale spotting, watching and took time to explain whale habits, their environment and put us in good positions to take photos. We enjoyed the explanations around earthquakes and road restoration works and it was quite spectacular to land & stop for a very cold but spectacular photo on the top of Mt Fyfe. I wonder if pilots or ground crew have any particular tips to offer relating to photographing with telephoto lenses. Maybe high shutter speeds, Tv, auto ISO. The photos we took where good and reasonably in close but not as sharp as I hoped for. Pretty tricky with moving chopper, sea and whale I guess. Overall 10 out of 10. Thank you. Very memorable!
We got an awesome and friendly driver, our guide, Scott, for informative commentary on the way to whale watching activity. Great thanks to Scott for takiing there. Also there was a professional, informative, helpful and friendly team on board. The team tried their best to help tracing the whales and eventually the world’s largest whales, Blue Whales were viewed. Great thanks to the team for making our trip fantastic and unforgettable!
This experience was everything we hoped it would be and more. We saw lots of birds, many really close up. Our guide, Gary, was very knowledgeable and amazed us with immediate identification of all the birds we saw. The bonus was seeing lots of young seals on a rock and a very large pod of dolphins..We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend it.
This was a wonderful experience. We are novice kayakers but handled the trip quite well. Beautiful trip, saw sosme wildlife, had a great guide and saw a beautiful sunset over the magnificent mountains.
I really enjoyed my kayaking tour! We got to see lots of seals and our guide was great. Would definitely recommend.
