Skagit Jet Sled Photo Tours
This is 3 hour tour specifically meant for photography using a Jet powered boat (jet sled) which has become our photography clienteles choice for getting great pictures of the birds. It has a large motor to run upstream and a small 4 stroke motor that I use to control the boat as we drift back down river. I have found that in the Drift Boats the motion of the guide rowing the boat can frighten the birds more than the quiet motor does. This is especially true when we are getting in position for a close up shot of the birds while they are feeding or sitting in low branches along the river. The jet sleds ability to go back up stream makes it much more versatile, and allows for more opportunity. One other positive about the Sled is that it is large and can hold 6 photographers plus gear. It is also a very stable platform.
Jet Sled Photography Tour Rates:
$85.00 per person ( 4 person min, 6 person max) If you are booking online and don't have enough people in your group to meet the 4 person minimum, give us a call. We have many photographers that are often waiting for other people to ask for the same date and will be able to work with you to get you scheduled for a tour.
Skagit Photography Tours
Available year around is our Photography Tour on the Skagit or Sauk rivers. If you are looking for an all day Photo Tour, this is the trip for you. Of course the highpoint of the year is the return of the Bald Eagles in late fall, but there are many photo opportunities for wild life and scenic shots year around. These tours are customized to the amateur or professional photographer and are usually a 6 to 8 hour trip. There are several different sections of these two rivers to float, depending on what the client is looking for. You will have the boat to yourself on this tour with a guide that will do his best on getting you as close to the wildlife as possible, as well as getting you in the right position for lighting and scenic shots. Give us a call and we will discuss what would work best for you. Don't forget to enter our Photo contest! You could win a free Photo tour!
