    Orcas, Orcas, Orcas
    September 17-25 : Ellen Anon and Barbara Jordan will be the guest photo pros on this cruise.  They will be there to answer all your photography questions. Both Ellen and Barbara have spent substantial time photographing nature and have had their images appear in numerous publications.  Ellen has written several books about photography and post processing.   This is a perfect trip for travel in an incredibly beautiful area to photograph wildlife and landscape, while learning how to improve your photo and post processing skills.

    Cruise through some of the most beautiful scenery in North America.  Cruising the Strait of Georgia and the Desolation Sound area is considered by many as the most beautiful cruising ground in British Columbia. The breathtaking coastline, intricate waterways, small islands and numerous attractive bays make the cruise a photographer's delight.

    The West coast of North America is home to three different populations of orcas that are genetically distinct. These are referred to as residents, transients and offshores.  It has been observed that the groups normally avoid contact with each other.  You can expect to see members of the resident population.  These clans have some predictable patterns of movement within the territory we will be cruising.  Transient orcas also frequent the area.

    "More orcas inhabit this region than exist in the rest of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska combined! This cruise spends time with resident orcas at two communities as well as the transient orcas in between. The northern resident community is near Johnstone Strait, and the southern resident community is near Friday Harbor, Washington. This region, the top of Vancouver Island to Friday Harbor, is the heart of a strong native culture with welldeveloped art, religion and social structure. The setting is one of unbelievable beauty  deep green bays rimmed by forests and mountains, punctuated by the black and white of the orca whale (actually the largest member of the dolphin family). We will spend as much time as possible with the orcas, visit bird rookeries and go ashore for brief hikes and beach combing. We will also make special visits to wonderful native museums and village sites." by Dolphin Charters.

    A valid passport is required for this trip. The cruise will be aboard Delphinus, a comfortable, 50-foot custom trawler that has been refitted for educational cruises. Large windows provide panoramic viewing from inside the saloon and pilot house. Outside, the spacious main deck and flying bridge allow outstanding viewing and ease of movement. Sleeping accommodations are bunk style with two narrow bunks to a very small cabin.  There is a full bathroom with shower on the lower deck and another bathroom on the stern.  Delphinus is certified by the U.S. Coast Guard. On this trip there will be a maximum of 6 passengers in addition to the crew.

    During your cruise you will enjoy wonderful meals prepared by a gourmet chef. The cost of the cruise, including all meals is $3795.00.

       We are privileged to live very close to Olympic National Park and have made numerous trips throughout the park exploring its nooks and crannies, learning the best places for great photography.   We would like you to join our small group of 6 as we take a custom-built photographic safari of the best of the Olympics.
