Re: Northwest Passage - 2015

Re: Northwest Passage - 2015

Anyone interested in a 2015 or 2016 NW Passage Expedition? Several boats have been asking me for leads.

Message me privately with your contact details if you are interested.

See out outdoors... on the water!

Arctic sea ice is near a record minimum for this time of year -- over the time period for which there are historical records.

Re: Northwest Passage - 2015

They have a great boat but when I was aboard early this year well short of equipped for the trip. They were sending out emails seeking donations of gear at that time. Not sure of the liability of having your gear sponsoring a trip like that?

Hopefully its smooth sailing this year like the year the nearly stock Bavaria 44 did it a few years back.

According to Deputy General Director of Fleet Operations FSUE "Atomflot" Andrey Smirnov, the first flight will last twelve days, and the remaining six - eleven.

"It has nothing to do with the change of the route and the exclusivity of the first flight, - said Andrei Smirnov. - In June, a complicated ice conditions, so the duration of the cruise slightly increased. "

In this year's first cruise flight 117 off tourists. Organizers prepared for their journey exciting program, which includes familiarity with picturesque bays Arctic, polar barbecue and swimming in the Arctic Ocean.

"The first time you look at the Arctic, it seems that in front of you is empty and bare countryside - says expedition leader Alex McNeil. - But then we see the polar bears, seals, walruses, birds and plants. We learn to see life in these parts.

This year, companies are charterers company «Quark», «Poseidon», «Volento» and «Zehgram». A series of tourist cruises completed by the end of August.

August 8, 1990 the first tourists to the North Pole brought nuclear-powered icebreaker "Russia". The captain of the flight was Anatoly Lamech. Since 2007, the cruises are made only on the submarine "50 Years of Victory".

What a great idea - drive an ice breaker around the area for seventy odd days.

Then they can complain about the "unprecedented break up of the ice".


And a quick update for those still planning the passage this year. NOAA are still predicting Aug-Oct to be well above average ice extent (over half a million square kilometers above historical norm in August):
