This trip is simply dedicated to taking photography. Cruise through Paterson Inlet to Foveaux Straits and to nearby islands. Look out for and view seabirds including majestic albatross, petrels, prion, shearwater, skua, penguins and cormorants. Your Skipper / Guide will try to maximise your photo opportunities by finding birds and pointing out interesting subject matter, along with assisting with bird identification.
