Clear Kayak Drone
The Kayak Photo Session at Mangel Halto, Aruba
Dive into one of the most pristine waters in Aruba: Mangel Halto.
Duration: Aproximmatley 1 hour.
Schedule & Meeting Point: Best sessions are held in the morning with flexible start times up until 9 am. This timing ensures optimal lighting to showcase the vivid blue waters. We meet at Mangel Halto, approximately 25 minutes away from the main resort area. Please note, transportation is not provided. Whether by rental car or taxi, reaching this non-touristy spot is straightforward.
- Photos are taken individually, whereas for the video, both occupants can be in the kayak simultaneously or one at a time.
- The kayak setup is simple: no paddle, no seats – just a picturesque prop for your photos/videos.
- To ensure safety and stability, the kayak is anchored, eliminating any drift.
- Our team will be there to help you embark and disembark from the kayak.
- Access to the kayak is via blue stairs (as seen in our examples). Once you descend, we'll place you in the kayak, secure it, capture the moments, and then assist you back ashore. While the process is simple, detailing it ensures clarity for our clients.
- As you'd have seen from our examples, specific poses enhance the outcome. Given the distance during the shoot, continuous guidance won't be possible. We'll guide you beforehand, but once you're positioned, a bit of self-directing may be needed.
- Choose between a delightful local breakfast or a savory charcuterie board.
- Enjoy unlimited Mimosas as you soak in the serenity.
- Personalize your experience by playing your own music playlist, creating a unique atmosphere for your session.

I know everywhere we look, we are told that we must not only be perfect, but unrealistic. That we are not good enough as we are. My goal as your photographer, is to bring out the beauty from within. The special light that is inside of us all - no matter how many laugh lines we have.
