I'm excited about adding this
safari to my 2024 schedule. I just got back from shooting this safari for
the third time (2023) and we had amazing results. There is a large population of melanistic (black) red foxes on the island, and
as you can see from the photos - we are primarily interested in photographing
them, but we don't pass up the regular red foxes either. There are dozens
of foxes in a relatively small area of about 10 square miles, with
den sites here and there.
Mornings can be cool, windy, and foggy. Having an easily
transportable camp chair can be handy. Temps are mild.
not traveling with me, we meet in Friday Harbor, on San Juan
Island on Tuesday afternoon. I take the Washington
State Ferry from Anacortes, WA to Friday Harbor, it is a
drive-on, drive-off ferry and costs around $90 round-trip.
Hotel reservations must be made by each person, as most
hotels don't allow me to reserve a group of rooms, though
upon signing up I will make the hotel information available.
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, or credit card, and
the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the
safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then
full payment is due. Check the main safari page for other
I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography career shooting
in the American West. The first 24
years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. The photo safaris that I lead are all to
the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife
activity periods. What a rush it has been.
