This experience can't be beat. There's little I can add that hasn't been stated. Just go. If you're anywhere in the area, you MUST check this out. It's super cool being this close to so many of these beautiful sea birds. Just pray for good weather--this is a make or break.
For the photographers, I'm just an amateur, but there were many professionals who came on the trip. Many brought lots of gear--multiple full-frame cameras with up to 500 mm lenses, and this is completely doable. Very easy to get your gear there and into the blinds with you. Capt. Andy and crew are used to professionals carrying tens of thousands of dollars worth of gear, so they will be able to help you if you have concerns. I just had a 200 mm on a 1.5x factor camera, which is really plenty for most great shots, but in some ways I was still itching for a bit more reach to take a couple high detail, up close head shots that I wasn't able to achieve. If you are looking to travel light, you can get amazing shots with a 200 mm or 300 mm. If you're really greedy and want it all, then you can bring more gear without a problem. Hopefully that info is helpful.
