Review by Carmen B (from Tripadvisor)
Come and join Rolf's adventure photo tours and tap into his experience, he has a lot of knowledge, tricks and tips to share.
Highlights of the boat-based photography tours is grizzly bear watching in scenic Knight Inlet along the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia as well as photographing and watching killer whales, humpback whales, dolphins, sea otters, eagles and other wildlife in the Broughton Archipelago Provincial Marine Park, all within First Nations Territory in British Columbia.
The land-based adventure tours are ideal if you want to enhance your photography skills further. On these tours, we visit the rocky beaches along the wild West Coast, sandy beaches of Cape Scott Provincial Park as well as beautiful scenic spots on Northern Vancouver Island.
All my tours are individually tailored to your needs (no need to be a photographer) and have a maximum of 4 participants.
"Adventure photo tour" because I want to make sure that you will discover the best photo opportunities, create beautiful images with your camera or simply encounter those rare moments that result in unforgettable memories. This ethical personal tour is for the experience and not only to get the best pictures.
" I can't promise you any wildlife but I can promise YOU to do everything to make it the very best day possible" - Rolf Hicker
