Welcome to photographers PARADISE! The Galapagos Islands have some of the most interesting birds and reptiles on the planet. The good news is – most of them are very approachable and easy to photograph! The Galapagos archipelago is teeming with wildlife, both above and below the water. This will most definitely give us great encounters and full memory-cards. WildPhoto Travel has extensive experience in the Galapagos archipelago and has customized this trip for photographers to provide for some extraordinary days in this paradise in the middle of Pacific Ocean.
We have selected the best local guides in Galapagos, and the best ship for our purpose, so that we will enjoy some very special photography and unique opportunities. On most days we will do early morning landing and evening landings, as well as snorkeling activity in the middle of the day. We expect to see all the land animals found on the Galapagos islands and a vast variety of the marine wildlife as well.
This photo expedition is part of the Penguin World project, where WildPhoto Travel is the main partner. In the Penguin World project we use penguins to raise more awareness about marine conservation issues, and the Galapagos penguins is the ambassador for the El Nino. A new severe El Nino with 2+ warmer sea temperature in the Pacific Ocean is now building up and last time (1997-98) Galapagos was affected, it caused a 65% decrease in the numbers of penguins, together with other anmals like Marine iguanas. In mid-february it is still no signs of negative effects in Galapagos, but it might happend next months.
During the expedition we will offer talks about El Nino, Galapago penguins, Climate changes etc. which will give you a more in-deapth understanding and relationship to what’s might happen soon around the Galapagos archipelago. This is a great opportunity to mix photography and conservation issues.
The itinerary has not been fixed, but will most likely look something like this:
Our yacht is spacious and well suited for photography. Most participants will be lodged in shared cabins (2 single cabins available). The beds are made ready and bed linen and towels are provided. Food service will be at a designated time, but we intend to be flexible in this regard if photo opportunities arise which dictate that the food has to wait. The chef generally has a varied and exciting menu.
We also have use of two Zodiacs (dingis) that are very spacious. These boats will be used to get closer to photo subjects or while going ashore.
