Enjoy nature and a beautiful ferry ride, while learning to take breathtaking photos! Your 6-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off from downtown Vancouver, return ferry ride to Bowen Island, an easy guided hike around Killarney Lake, and walk around the village shops, cafes and restaurants.

Led by an experienced photographer and tour guide, you’ll learn to take amazing photos of nature, landscape, wildlife and architecture. We'll cover techniques like long exposure, aperture, white balance and ISO for DSLR cameras, as well as camera phone tips. Alternatively, we can do photo shoots instead of learning photography if that's your interest. The best camera to bring are DSLRs but you’re also free to use your camera phone. Photography lessons/shoots, guided hike and transportation including ferry are included in the cost.

Discovering THE Bowen Island gem

Nafees was great company, engaging and knowledgeable. Great communication prior to meeting up. There was no need to take the car, as we walked from ferry quay, straight onto nature trial. Excellent lunch in Snug cafe, although the wasps were a problem. They obviously found the food good as well !
Highly recommended.
Great walk with photo learning experience

We had a great experience with Nafees! From the hotel pickup to the ferry ride to the amazing tour and photography tips! It was a fun way to learn something new, get some exercise in, and meet new people. Nafees was wonderful to learn from and had lots of amazing travel and photography stories to share. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Vancouver!
A great introduction to Bowen Island

If you're looking for a great first trip to Bowen Island, look no further. We had a lovely time wandering the trails, learning about the basics of photography, and exploring the town!

Nafees is a wonderful guide - incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us tips of his favourite spots on Bowen Island and was super accommodating about how we spent the day. Highly recommend!
