Alaska Sea Adventures

Nature Photography Trips

Excellent close up and low angle photography from one of the two Northern Song’s Rigid Inflatable Boats.

Cruise protected waters, enjoy varied landscapes and cultures and witness wildlife spectacles.

Highlights of your trip might include journeying through a narrow fjord, encountering a curious humpback whale, or watching brown bears feeding on salmon. Or maybe they include kayaking near an ancient blue glacier, and hiking in moss-cloaked rainforest. Perhaps you’ll delight in exploring the tiny world within a tide pool, watching waterfalls tumble down steep mountains, or visiting a Native village to meet and learn about the people who have lived and created art here for centuries. Whatever most interests you, we want to help you experience and photograph it.

The very stable decks of Northern Song provides plenty of space for photographers.

Discover how to use light and changing conditions to your best advantage. Learn how to make the most of your equipment and ability. And most importantly, have fun in a dynamic setting!
