More Arctic Cruise

Once again, I'd like to express  my thanks to both Eagle-Eye Tours and Adventure Canada, for allowing me this opportunity! Without it, my participation in this incredible adventure would most likely have remained a dusty item on my bucket list!

One of the highlights of the trip, for me, was seeing an ice berg break up from a zodiac in Disko Bay. Happily, my camera happened to be pointed in the right direction and ready to go. Here's the result (this is an animated gif file - click on the image and then wait for it to load, the animation should start automatically):


A fun aspect of the trip was the soccer match between the AC team, and the residents of Itilleq. The match apparently takes place every time the Clipper Adventurer visits the village, which is at least a few times each summer. Although the AC team put in a spirited effort, they were bested by Itilleq's professional squad whose record was extended to 20 and 1.























Also while the ship was anchored at Itilleq, several brave and hardy souls, of both the AC resource team and the compliment of passengers, leapt into the icy water to experience a true Polar Bear Swim! Most jumped in from the boarding hatch, but a few leapt about 25 metres from the bridge wing!














And that's a wrap! I will be loading all the images from the cruise to my onto website (tanyadeleeuw.smugmug.com) over the next few days, where many more images than were posted in this blog series will be available for viewing. I'll be happy to share small web-ready images with my fellow passengers and the resource team/crew upon request - please email me (tanyadeleeuw65@gmail.com) the image number. Prints and products can be ordered directly from the site.
