Diving Gannet Photography Trips

  • Bempton Cliffs, East Yorkshire
  • from £70.00 (see pricing table below)

Gannets dive in to the water at up to speeds of 60mph to catch their prey, which includes large fish such as Mackerel, Pollock and Herring. Our "Diving Gannet Photography Trips" are designed to capture images of these incredible birds as they gather together in feeding frenzies, diving in to the sea in their hundreds.

We will be chumming (throwing dead fish) to encourage the Gannets close to the boat, giving us excellent opportunities to capture images of these stunning birds diving in to the sea, surfacing with their fish and often fighting each other over their catch.

Join Steve Race, Yorkshire Coast Nature's award-winning wildlife photographer on this 4-hour photography workshop underneath the amazing seabird colonies of Flamborough Headland and Bempton Cliffs. The workshop will be tailored towards photographers of all abilities including professional photographers who would like to expand their portfolio or just experience this incredible wildlife spectacle.

Included: Boat fee, chumming, and tuition.

Not included: Harbour car park fee.

Group size: 12 maximum.

Please note: If you are a club, group or society wishing to book the boat for a private charter this can be arranged, please call the YCN office on 01723 865498 for details.
