Whether you are an inexperienced novice photographer or a seasoned veteran, cruises aboard the M/V Sikumi provide non-stop opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime cruise photography. From the breath-taking mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls, to the truly unique array of wildlife, photo-op’s await you and your camera around every corner.
The main deck of the M/V Sikumi is the ideal place to take in the scenery of the Inside Passage with your camera. Your photography expeditions are by no means limited, however, to the boat and its decks. We can arrange for shore landings virtually anywhere you would like to go, giving you chances to take photos of landscapes and scenery you’ve only ever dreamed of. Get up close and personal with wildlife you’ve only seen in magazines, or position yourself atop a mountain ridge for the perfect picture of the sun setting over majestic Alaska.
Filling your lens with the vast landscapes, abundant wildlife, and natural beauty of the Inside Passage is simple. Creating pictures is the easy part…keeping your shutter finger strong is the hard part. Remember, we have a computer on board to make it easy to backup images from your memory card and share photos with your fellow passengers.
“We appreciated that everyone’s photos were downloaded on a flash drive at the end of the trip and that Amy provided a day by day description of where we went and what we had done. A nice way to share the experience that was captured by other photographs.”
