What you'll do

We'll take a breathtaking ocean ferry ride to an island and spend a few hours exploring old-growth forests, waterfalls, and wildlife. The highlight is of course the fall colors and fallen leaves at this time of year. Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s nature, while learning the basics of landscape photography. With plenty of one-on-one instruction, you will learn to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone. All levels of hikers and types of cameras are welcome. Bowen Island, a 20 min ferry ride from Vancouver - is home to a variety of wildlife, galleries and shops. The ferry ride alone is breathtaking, with gorgeous views of Howe Sound and islands. Details on what to wear and bring along for the tour will be provided, but comfortable shoes and clothing, water and snacks are recommended. As a photographer I'll capture your memories, and send you complimentary photos at the end of our tour.

Where you'll be

You will leave downtown Vancouver for a ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay terminal. We'll explore Bowen Island trails, a hidden gem not even the locals know about. The 'walk-in-the-park' is easy, fun and safe for anyone, regardless of age. We'll venture deep into the forest and later check out the island's shops and galleries. We'll visit waterfalls and lakes, see wildlife and grab lunch at a local cafe.
