Re: Going whaling...

Thanks Zuman for your advice.
Sorry for the delay as I was battling the flu virus.

So does that mean that on the big cruise ship, it will be almost impossible to get any good wildlife shots?

I think I will start another thread to ask some more stuff. Thanks so much!

Yes, I think it will work very well while you're on the small whale-watching boat. You'll be amazed how close they get, and you won't even need to go to 300mm at times!

You might get lucky and see bear, caribou, or moose close enough for your lens to get something cool. Ptarmigan and small animals are interesting, too. Sheep and wolves are unlikely other than as part of a landscape.

The ship won't go where you want and they all have different itineraries, so giving you specific locations won't help. Sorry. You should get some cool glacier shots, though, and I think some of the soaring cliffs are amazing. Your challenge, of course, is going to be that the ship will determine a lot of your composition. Good luck!
