We are excited to introduce a series of expeditions designed to help you improve your wildlife photography skills while exploring some of our favorite nature destinations.

This summer (July 12–21), you can join renowned writer and conservation photographer Jaymi Heimbuch on a 10-day / 9-night cruise through the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska. Our wildlife-focused itinerary aboard an intimate 12-passenger ship includes six days spent in the incredible Glacier Bay National Park. As you explore and learn about this pristine and abundant wilderness, Jaymi will offer hands-on photography instruction to help you take your skills to the next level (get started with these tips for photographing wildlife from a boat). Non-photographers will also enjoy this active itinerary that explores the best parts of the Southeast Alaskan wilderness with a knowledgeable and experienced crew.

On this expedition we will have the opportunity to encounter and photograph a variety of wildlife including humpback whales, bears, moose, mountain goats, sea otters, seals, sea lions, eagles, and horned puffins, and will explore beautiful glaciers, old-growth forests, and the beautiful, rugged coastline.
