  • If you are thinking about a Pete Dobré Photo Tour, please book now !!!!
  • Operators that I deal with in running my tours require commitment 8 weeks out and in the past I’ve had people booking within that time and the tour has to be cancel due to low numbers and yet if people had booked earlier, the tour would have been sold out. This is one of the tricky aspects of running tours which is the cut off point which operators require otherwise I’m charge with rooms that I cant use. Please keep this is the back of your mind when considering a Pete Dobré Photo Tour, just makes things so much easier from my end.
  • Thanks
  • Kind Regards
  • Pete:)

Kangaroo Island is a free spirited Island which offers so much. When I go there I feel a deep sense of wonder, delight, freedom, being in touch with my emotions and all of my senses.

On day 1 of the 8 day photography tour, we meet at the central location of the Adelaide Airport Motel where Pete picks you up in a mini Bus and off we go. At the end of the trip, you’ll drop you off at the same location.

If you are flying from interstate or overseas, Pete will arrange to get you to and from the Adelaide Airport, taking all the worry away from you in working out transport from A to B.There is a shuttle bus that goes from the airport to the motel and that takes only 3 minutes and that will cost $3.50

Kangaroo Island Photo Tour will inspired you as you spend 8 days photographing some of Australia’s most stunning and award winning beaches. The island boasts unique wildlife including seals, koalas and wallabies and echidnas and much more. Sand dunes, ochre cliffs, lighthouses, Remarkable Rocks and quaint coves are what make Kangaroo Island so breathtaking.

This photo tour now has an 8th days and this is a day or rest . The sunrises are very early ( leaving at 4.45am and Pete now has a day of rest placed part way through the tour which gives you a chance to have a sleep in, a chance to be fresh for the rest of the trip and it also provides a opportunity to go through your images.

Pete has chartered a boat just for our group where you’ll spend three hours shooting the dolphins and seals. Weather permitting you’ll be able to swim with the dolphins. (Min of 6 for this) If that is not enough, our group gets their own personal hour with the birds of prey where we can photograph them in flight and do our own photographic study on these wonderful birds. If the numbers are right you get your own private tour of seal Bay where we can photograph these wonderful creatures in  peace and tranquility. There is a lot covered in this tour and you will be continually amazed what a wonderful and truly awe inspiring Island this is.

This is an amazing experience where we shoot the dolphins at this their best.

We will join Andrew  and Nina on his private charter boat, where he uses his experience as a KI local to get us right up close to the dolphins. He also has an appreciation of photography so he puts us in the right place at the right time. If you are brave enough with the cool waters you can even go swimming with them. This is an experience that leaves a lasting impression!

Note: We require a minimum booking of 6 people on the tour to run this activity

Seal Bay

This is where Pete hires out the beach if numbers are high enough where you photograph the seals with a guide who can direct us where we can and can’t go and the good thing is that we have the beach to ourselves and it is not uncommon for someone in the party who just sits and admires all that is around them and rarely takes a picture. The choice is your to photograph or just to take it all in .

Beach & Ocean Scapes

The Island is made up of so many wonderful beaches and Pete takes you in a sea scape journey where you will see the clear majestic waters before your eyes and as many people are amazed that you usually get the beaches to yourself or only with a handful of people. The overseas people who Pete’s Photo tours in South Australia are totally blown away with the lack of people on the beaches which is awesome.
