What to carry? Nature, wildlife trip/expedition.

So, I will travel to the chilean Patagonia in a few months and I'm wondering what gear to take with me.

We'll be mostly taking wildlife (birds, sea mammals) and some landscape shots (icebergs and such).

I'll staying on a ship for 7 days, so there is not a lot of space to store things and with a lot of embarking and disembarking it's better to avoid overpacking.

I have two Canon camera bodys, a 5d mkIII and a 70D.

Lens wise, I have a few:

  • Sigma 150-600mm C HSM
  • Tamron 70-200 F2.8 VC USD G1
  • EF 24-70mm f4L
  • EF 100mm f2.8L Macro
  • EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro
  • EF-S 18-135mm STM
  • Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art HSM
  • EF 70-300mm IS USM

Also, I'm 41yo and in good shape overall (a little overweight, but just a few pounds :)).

My initial idea was to bring just the two bodies and the first trhee lenses. But I don't know.

Any thoughts or experiences that would help?

Thx in advance.
