Whale Watching with David Newton, Loreto, Sea of Cortez, Baja California Sur

Do you want to see the largest animal to have ever lived on earth up close and personal? To photograph it as it feeds, to capture the majestic site of that giant tail high in the air as they dive or to see it glide under your boat like an approaching submarine? 

Or perhaps you'd rather than chance to photograph a Humpback Whale breaching. 30,000Kg flying out of the water and landing with a thunderous splash. Or maybe it's a super-pod of dolphins that gets your heart racing? Being surrounded by up to 1500 dolphins playing and chattering, so close you can hear their sonar pings through the boat. Or finally, maybe its the chance to pet, yes actually stroke, a Grey Whale and calf that will really do it for you?

Or just perhaps you want to see and photograph all of this in company of two people - one, the lead Blue Whale researcher in the Sea of Cortez, and the other, Me! A former Marine Biologist who can definitely help you improve your photography so you get amazing images of whatever encounters we have while we're there.

This photographic trip will put you in the heart of the Sea of Cortez, on a small boat with the ability to get really close to the whales. I'll be there to help you get the best images possible and to answer any and all photographic questions as they arise. We'll cover everything from lens choice to getting the right exposure, to making sure you get the images sharp, not to mention talks about processing, composition etc in the evenings.
