Guided Trips

Since 1995, I have been leading trips around the world dedicated to scuba diving and photography.    For over a decade Indonesia was my favorite destination, because of  the incredible bio-diversity of species.

A decade later, my focused changed to diving the colorful reefs of Fiji, and observing Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whales in Tonga, & Sperm Whales in Dominica.

In 2017, I organized two Tonga whale swim trips and both are sold out.  I have two trips started for 2018 and they are almost full.  The details are below.

Trip one is Sept 7-17th.  This is a 10 day live-abaord trip on Wildlife that is limited to 4-5  guests.   Currently there is space for a single male or a couple.  $7,995 per person

Trip two is Sept 17-27. This is a 10 day adventure that is part live-aboard and part eco-lodge. We will spend two nights on Wildlife and seven nights on Nomuku Island in the Ha’apai island group of Tonga. We stay in fancy Safari style tents with full size beds, and enjoy family style cooking.  There is main house for all meals and socializing and Topic Bird, a 30 foot ribbed Zodiac has been chartered for 6 days. The last full day will be spent on Wildlife as we enjoy whale watching until the afternoon when we set our sail towards Nuku’alofa, when guests will disembark in the morning.  There is currently space for two on this adventure.

If there is demand a third trip will be offered also 10 days going from Sept 27th – Oct 7

Whale swimming is the ultimate adventure

 

In 2019, I have chartered Wildlife from Sept 6-16 and again Sept 17-27th.   There is a chance the second trip may become a combination trip like above.   We are still working out the details.

Sept 28-Oct 8, 2019 I will be the guest photo pro on the Fiji Siren, for a 10 day trip.  I will do presentations on photography frequently throughout the charter.
