Learn all you need to know about wildlife photography while taking part in a journey of adventure and discovery.
Sail with us for a week around the Greek islands of the Cyclades and capture unique images of wildlife and nature. Greece is not just about "sea and sun", there is so much natural beauty waiting to be discovered.
Pelicans, hooded crows, egrets and ravens, cormorants, gulls, vultures... bottle-nosed, common and striped dolphins... sea turtles, terrapins, wall lizards... butterflies... orchids, anemones and thousands of other species are waiting to be "captured" by you.
We will attempt to observe all the above species and many more under the guidance of the successful freelance Wildlife Photographer Patricia Fenn.
