Our photo safaris are for photographers and non photographers who want to get up close to large marine life. All of our trips are to destinations proven to be reliable for great encounters. Gregory Sweeney is on hand to help guests with camera gear and techniques before and during the trips. We have experience and have done research to find the best charters, hotels, restaurants, etc. Most of our trips do not require scuba certification, but guests should be comfortable in the open water and snorkeling with some free diving. Many guests return year after year making our groups a great mix of experienced travelers. Our site contains much information about each trip along with photos. Check out the trip reports too, but if you still have questions we are happy to answer questions - I personally answer each inquiry.
The pursuit of underwater images has taken Gregory Sweeney to many remote locations including Tasmania, Mozambique, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Ulithi, New Zealand, and the islands off British Columbia. He has received several international awards for his nature and underwater images. He has a degree in Wildlife Management and spent many years working as a Wildlife Biologist/Park Ranger for the National Park Service.
Gregory has spent much time with the manatees in their winter habitats in Florida. Over many seasons he has perfected the techniques of photographing these large and special marine mammals. His manatee photographs have been used to promote the protection of manatees. He also leads annual treks to photograph whales, dolphins, sharks, and the large mammals in Africa.
He believes in promoting a healthy attitude toward marine life through education and public awareness. Through his images and photo tours he hopes to encourage others to protect the oceans and their intrinsic beauty.
