I have decided to retire from Photo-Boat trips in the future. I am saddened an orgization such as the Audubon Society would make an attempt to restrict access of the rookeries and the FWC, with no scientific evidence is even considering this.
A 100' boundries will be imposed around all the main rookeries on the west coast of Florida. This will mean for photographers you would need an 800 mm lens to even have a chance to capture any birds.
I want to thank all my former clients who has booked trips and taken classes. I can assure you this decision was one of the hardest I ever had to make.
