We had a magic time up in Churchill, Canada, on our Polar Bear photography trip. Caught up with old mates and shared another adventure. It was a well organized trip. Our last day in Churchill was our best. Our capable adventure organizer, Greg , arranged for a highly experienced local guide and a private small bus for the five of us. Thank you for a great trip

Guest

Whale Sharks 2016

We are very selective on the type tour we go on being tour guides/owners ourselves, so after our first whale shark trip with Greg we had to do another one! From the moment we signed up, Karen was extremely helpful with the information about how to get there, suggestions on taxis service, hotels, making us feel comfortable going to a strange place. Once there, Greg was so much fun and attentive and full of history and information. Having been to these places many years previously, he knew wonderful places to eat too! CEVICHE our favorite!! Their attention to detail, experience and knowledge of the marina life is what brings us back. If you are a new or old photographer, it's the perfect trip ! Can't wait for our safari in 2016 !!

-Stacy & Mike, Floridaus

Guest

Sailfish 2016

I had a great sailfish shoot with photographer Greg Sweeney in Mexico this month--rare encounters with dozens of these hungry predators attacking sardine bait balls. The way Greg runs the trip works for me: early morning shoot times and we can all get in at the same time. - Tim has decided to return with us for Whale Sharks this summer.

-Tim Fitzharris, AR us


Guest

Sailfish 2016

Just a note to thank you for all your efforts last week. Kurt and I had a great time. You’re a cool dude and I appreciate that you are intelligent and funny and intrepid. I’m already talking to my friends about South Africa and whale sharks and other ideas. I definitely hope we meet again. Thanks.
