THIS WAS AN AMAZING ADVENTURE - "Sable island is a difficult place to get to on a good day! Geordie was a top-notch host and I felt he prepared me well for what to expect and I was wanting for nothing on the journey. We even had an award-winning lunch out on the island!" - Briannacorrscott (Oct '17)


Throughout the day, your guide, Geordie Mott, a professional photographer, and owner of Picture Perfect Tours will provide photography instruction and insights to help you best capture this incredible location. Geordie also has a family connection to the island:

"The remote majesty of Sable has always held a unique place in our family history! My great-great-grandfather Joseph Blakeney was the island superintendent during WWI. His daughter Muriel taught school on the island and in 1914 she met my great grandfather William Mott who was a lifesaver stationed on Sable Island. I still have Muriel's old photo album from their time on the island!" – Geordie Mott
