The whole area and your photography/birding opportunities change with the seasons, therefore so do our tours.
Sometimes we need to run deep into the Park's interior to reach a shoot location or species. Other times, the wildlife is close by.
Lighting considerations can influence a shoot and many photographers wish to shoot early in the mornings or late in the evenings.
However, tidal considerations are even more important, especially for shooting wading birds as they need shallow water to feed.
Many photographers enjoy shooting while standing in the water or on a remote sand beach.
All private photography tours are customized based on your desires, the season, the wildlife and the weather.
You and your guide discuss your needs, wants and the possible options prior to your tour.
The use of a power boat typically provides the most flexibility for photographers. A flat-decked boat is your shooting platform and has room for one tripod and two guests (three if smaller framed).
An electric trolling motor is used to maneuver the boat into position for your shots and to silently approach the wildlife.
The power boat is also the only practical way to shoot some of the spectacular island beaches and landscapes at sunrise and sunset.
On most tours, you will be with a wildlife photographer who is also Florida Master Naturalist and licensed Coast Guard captain.
This tour is $399.95 and typically lasts about 2.5 to 3 hours. Reservations are required and the tour can be booked securely online (and save you $10!).
Please do not hesitate to call, however.
Prices exclude 7% Florida sales tax and gratuity for your guide.
