Adventures by Kirk in Detail

St Lucia Photo Tour Meets St Lucia Island Explorer.

So you have a fancy digital camera but you’re not getting the most out of it. Then The St Lucia Photo Tour is the perfect St Lucia excursion for you.   Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned photographer our Photo Tour is an amazing day of photography learning, shooting, image critiquing and more. We will help you take your photography to a whole new level and best of all – you’ll have the photos to prove it!

The tour is led by acclaimed St Lucia photographer Kirk Elliott who is a National Geographic Certified Educator and a New York Times Assignment Photographer. Kirk’s counter intuitive and contrarian approach to photography will have you seeing the world in a whole new light and your images will be so much the better for it.

Photo Enthusiasts love this tour so much that they’ve ranked it as the #1 Outdoor Saint Lucia Activity on TripAdvisor (2015 – 2020); and TripAdvisor ranks it as one of the Top 5 Photo Tours in the entire Caribbean!

During COVID we switched to Private Experiences exclusively to protect guests by not mixing them with anyone outside their household. We then added the Private Island Explorer for folks who were not as much into photography, but loved the idea of a custom designed excursion that engaged them via Zoom in planning the day out so that their interests were covered. These private experiences immerse visitors in Saint Lucia’s culture, history, and cuisine in a deeper way than on the Photo Tour and folks simply couldn’t get enough.

Adventures by Kirk brings these two classic island excursions together into a single tour that is ideal for photographers and delightful for accompanying non-photographer spouses or significant others too.

In fact, we think Adventures by Kirk might just be: Your Ultimate Saint Lucia Adventure.

Private or Ultra Small Groups ONLY

Book your Island Adventure either as a Private Experience for a couple or a family or friends vacationing together.

Alternatively you can book as part of an Ultra Small Group of no more than 10 persons.

What sets our Island Experiences apart from all other island tours is both the level of personalization you will enjoy as well as the depth of Kirk’s knowledge both in photography as well as the history and culture of the Saint Lucia.

You will discover how St Lucia factored in the American War of Independence and how the island went on to defeat the British to enjoy a Year of Freedom in 1795-96. Then there is the role the island played supporting America during World War II, and how President Roosevelt visited St Lucia to inspect the Naval Outpost the US established here in 1940 to counter the Germans. Kirk will take you on a captivating journey as he brings history and culture to life for you on top of your photography master class.
