Wildlife & Dolphins of Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is a nature lovers dream.  With large, resident pods of bottlenose dolphins, it is the ideal location to immerse yourself with these playful mammals.  We will be snorkelling on the surface with the dolphins, over beautiful expanses of seagrass and shallow sand coastline, as well as photographing dolphins topside from the boat.

There will be a full day land-based tour, where you have the chance to photograph koalas, birds, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, goannas and more.

No matter what level of photography or videography experience you have, Scott Portelli will be on hand daily to help you get the most out of your trip.  There will be time each evening to review and edit your images to optimise your photography and improve your approach.

This will be a small group expedition, maximum 5 people
