I am very excited to offer two helicopter excursions to Sable Island in 2022. In partnership with Kattuk Expeditions, both trips feature one full day of exploration of Sable Island with emphasis on wild horse photography. Both trips include a buffer day in case of inclement weather and accommodation at the Westin Hotel Halifax. All levels of photographers are welcome and price is based on single occupancy. Guests that are interested in doing both excursions or sharing a room may inquire about a discount.
