If you are bringing a DSLR, we recommend having both wide angle and telephoto lenses, or a single zoom lens that covers a broad range. For the whale watching portion of the tour, a longer lens anywhere in the 200-600 range is recommended—preferably one with VR (Vibration Reduction). On the trail, a lens in the 24-80mm range would be ideal. If you have a macro lens, bring that along! There is no need to invest in top of the line lenses, but being able to cover a broad range of focal lengths is advantageous. A single “super zoom” (i.e. - 28mm -300mm) will work just fine for both portions of the tour. If you have several lenses, put them in your pack. Your guide will help you make selections along the way. Of course, how you use what you have is more important than what you have, and your guide will be happy to work with you one-on-one to help you get the best out of whatever camera/lens combination you bring!
