A message from Doug,

Since 2005, I have been leading groups to Tonga to swim with whales.  I have been on boats that take as few as 4 and as many as 18 guests, and on adventures that are land-based as well as live-aboard. I have learned a lot about whales and about what it takes to put together a successful trip.  That is why I am so excited about the adventures in  2024.

If you have an interest in one of these adventures please send me an email. If you might know someone that might be interested please forward these details to them. I appreciate it.   

Aloha and Mahalo,

Douglas Hoffman

Testimonials From Previous Clients

Having taken a variety of photography tours/classes, Douglas distinguished himself right away. Through conversation and a few questions, he learned that we knew enough to take our lens caps off before we shot. So instead of a canned lesson plan, we got exactly what we wanted. Which was a focus on the artistic side of photography.


San Jose, CA

What a great experience. Not only did I learn a lot about how to take great pictures Doug also took me to places I wouldn’t have seen. Can’t wait to put my new skills to good use.


I knew that my trip to Maui was going to epic but what I did not know was that my time spent with Douglas would turn this total newbie into an artist in just one day. Douglas was able to transform my abilities and skill level with a camera from just your average snapshooter into an actual photographer in just one workshop.

Doug’s techniques are so personalized to the lighting scenario. He stimulated my mind to re-think how I approach photography which I will put into practice!
