Tips For Successful Wildlife Viewing
In our quest to provide a satisfying wildlife viewing experience, we strive to avoid disrupting the natural behavior of the animals we are observing.
Here are a few things you can do to help:
- When approaching wildlife, the captain will maneuver the vessel for the optimal view. If you are out on deck, move as slowly and as quietly as possible to avoid startling the animals. Please close doors gently and speak in a low tone of voice. When we view wildlife at close range, our Naturalist will not use a microphone.
- If you have a flash attachment on your camera, please turn it off or cover it. A bright flash of light can alarm animals at rest.
You will get your best views of the animals if you move about the boat. If you are next to a window it is courteous to the other passengers to be seated.
