Glacier Bay Special

A Photo Tour with Don Paulson through Dolphin Charters (Full)

USA, Alaska, Glacier Bay National Park, Reid GlacierDolphin Charters Logo

July 14 to July 20, 2011 Starting/Ending in Hoonah

Join Don Paulson and Dolphin Charters for our premier trip in Glacier Bay National Park – the pinnacle of Alaskan Scenery! Based aboard the Delphinus, a comfortable, 50-foot custom trawler, you will be surrounded by the spires, crags, and glaciated peaks of the Fairweather Range. Extensive glaciers reach the sea where huge blocks of ice, some 200 feet tall, break off and fall into the water. Twelve such tidewater glaciers exist in the park, and you will have time to explore several of them. While we explore the Park broadly, we regularly go ashore to experience and photograph the intricacies and subtleties that compose this grand design – right at peak wildflower season.

Glacier Bay is outstanding for its wildlife, containing the greatest variety of large mammals and birds of any of our locations. Moose, wolves, mountain goats, and black and brown bears are frequently seen. Sea otters, harbor seals and Steller sea lions are also abundant here. Nearby Icy Strait is one of the very best areas for orcas and humpback whales. You’ll be astounded as you watch these giants lunge out of the water.

This trip is geared for photography enthusiasts. You will photograph alongside professional nature photographer Don Paulson, both on shore and aboard the Delphinus. Don will be available throughout the trip for any help or photo advice you may need. His passion for photography is contagious and you will be inspired to try new and creative ways to make photographs. If you are new to photography, Don will put you at ease with his knack for clear and simple explanations to your questions. Advanced photographers will benefit from Don’s extensive knowledge and many years of working as a full-time nature photographer. In the evenings you may wish to download and view your photos for the day. Don will be available to help you with any of your downloading or photo editing questions.
