Vancouver Island Photo Tours

Rolf Hicker, born and raised in Germany, is a full-time 40+ year professional award-winning nature, travel and wildlife photographer with an "endless" client list like National Geographic, Canadian Tourism Commission, Fairmont Hotels, Holland America, BMW, Porsche, Readers Digest just to name a few.



Rolf started photographing, filming and publishing the northern part of Vancouver Island in 1982. He was involved in several video productions and the movie production "The Killer Whales of Johnstone Strait". He filmed orcas over a period of 7 years underwater.


Rolf travelled intensively around the world and in 2004, he finally called northern Vancouver Island his home and immigrated to Canada.


Today he lives with his two boys Alex and Daniel and his partner Sarah between Port McNeill and Telegraph Cove where he offers a beautiful Bed and Breakfast and private customized photo/family tours as a certified professional bear watching guide, a marine mammal guide (MERS) and captain (SVOP, Transport Canada).

Sustainability is always first in everything they do. Check out our "Sustainability Mission Statement".

Sustainable food farming for his guests and neighbours as well as compost, vermiculture and worm farming occupies the rest of his time.
