Cape Romano Dome Homes Boat Trip
August 18 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm$80
Hurricane Irma knocked down two of the domes of the Cape Romano Dome Home so we are planning a boat trip to photograph it while it’s still standing! Who knows if it will make it through this hurricane season.
Please review the refund policy before you register. There are no refunds or transfers within two weeks of this outing unless it’s cancelled. You may, however, send someone in your place.
I never get tired of seeing this historic and beautiful abandoned home that is being swallowed up by the sea.
We are teaming up with Dreamlander Tours out of Goodland to take six photographers (including Joe) to photograph the Dome Homes. Early registration is only $80 per person but please budget at least $10 for a tip for the captain as well. Dreamlander Tours has amazing captains that really go out of their way to please their customers. We’ve worked with them for many years and it’s always a great experience!
It’s about a 30 minute boat trip each way so we’ll have plenty of time to photograph the Dome Homes from several angles. We are sure to see dolphins on our way to or from the Dome Homes too!
Bring a wide to medium lens – a[masked]mm on a full frame or 18-55 mm on a crop frame camera will be perfect. If you have a CPL (circular polarizer lens), bring that as well. You won’t need a tripod. Please don’t bring a ton of equipment or we’ll be tripping over it on the boat.
Wear a hat, bathing suit and bring a towel in case you are tempted to jump in to the warm water. It will be a hot day!
After, you can join us for lunch at Stan’s if you like.
What a great way to spend a Saturday morning!!
Fine Print: We cannot control the weather. Obviously if it is pouring or lightning, we’ll cancel. But if it’s just raining slightly or if the forecast shows afternoon showers, we are still going to go. If the water is a bit choppy, you’ll need a fast shutter speed and some sea sickness pills!
Please note we need to sell all five spots in order to make this happen. There is a very small margin so we can’t pay for the boat without five people. Sign up as soon as you can and invite your friends! Thanks!!
