Binoculars can help provide more detailed observations for behaviors. When viewing whales from land, 10x50 wide-angle binoculars are best. From boats or airplanes, use 8x40 or 7x50 binoculars instead.

Always take precautions to protect your skin from the sun. Use a waterproof sunblock that has a sun protection Factor of 30 (SPF 30). A visor or hat and UV blocking sunglasses will make viewing more pleasant.

To avoid sea sickness take at least 30 minutes before a trip a non medicated alternative as crackers, dry bread, papaya or ginger. If thirsty, sip on carbonated beverages and avoid alcohol.

tips whale photos
Set your shutter speed for 1/500th of a second or faster to freeze the movement of the whale, and minimize motion effects of the vessel, ocean, or your body.

Ensure the horizon is level in the viewfinder.

Hold the camera steady. Depress the shutter release slowly.

Do not follow the whale through its movements with the camera as this will blur the image.

Use print or slide film with ASA of 100 or greater.

Avoid excessive zooming if using video or movie cameras to film whales - this will only accentuate the motion of the vessel or aircraft. You may severely damage a video camera (and your eyes) by filming directly into bright, glaring sunlight.
