Launching a new photography departure December 8 - 12, 2017, on the Aqua Mekong, Aqua Expeditions will give travelers an opportunity to sail along one of the most historically and culturally rich areas with award-winning photographer Francisco Marin - a successful commercial photographer and teacher who has been practicing his craft in Asia for more than 10 years.
During the exclusive departure, guests will travel alongside Marin as he shares tips and techniques to creating visual stories; participate in hands-on workshops; and learn to capture dramatic moments, such as Buddhist temples, floating Khmer villages and riverside markets; and join evening Q&A sessions with the photographer and likeminded travelers. During the Q&A sessions, travelers can ask questions about composition, lighting, technical enhancements and photography challenges over a drink at the bar.
The photography cruise is open for booking with a limited number of spaces available. Rates for the photography cruise start at $5,140 USD based on double occupancy for the four-night sailing departing from Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Earlier this year, Aqua Expeditions announced a new collaboration with ocean conservationist and filmmaker Jean-Michel Cousteau. Launching with a series of special luxury cruises in 2017 and 2018 with five seven-night departures, the new Cousteau-hosted itineraries will offer guests access to the explorer on both the Aria Amazon and Aqua Mekong vessels. The voyages are open for booking with a limited number of spaces available. Rates for these voyages start at $11,150 per person, based on double occupancy. Each departure is available for individual travelers or as a buyout for full charters.
