This trip involves a lot of Zodiac trips. We’re getting into the routine of Expedition Parka, waterproof pants, wellies and life jacket to board the zodiac. Today we floated about waiting for a calving, but no such luck.
I’m enjoying the cruise with Al & Susan Poweski. I’ve known them for 35+ years and we have a long history of travel, but mostly involving skiing.
It’s nice to get back from a chilly Zodiac adventure to an extremely civilized High Tea. I could get used to this lifestyle!
So the whale count is growing and now includes: Blue, Fin, Sperm, Humpback and Minke. I’ve mostly seen whale blows but the naturalist has confirmed the species. At one point there was a pod of 12-15 Fin whales. No spy hopping, breaching or flukes, these whales all seem to be in a hurry, perhaps their internal clocks tell them summer in Greenland is waning.

Really cool that you got to see the northern lights! So what are “wellies”? Looks like a really nice cruise with high tea at all.
Wellies are rubber boots that are just below the knee. They are for wet landings.
Oh Barb this sounds like a perfect adventure. One your old scared cousin could do! Most times I read you trips shake my head and think how brave you are! Miss you!!! Eder and Eder
You definitely could do this, it’s fun!
