Arctic Voyage Video: Episode 1


Many of you have probably already seen this either on Cruising World magazine’s site or on our YouTube channel, but here is Episode 1 of our Arctic Voyage video series!

In it, the story begins in the storm-tossed Aleutian Islands in June of 2015. The year before, we sailed Celeste from Washington State to Dutch Harbor of “Deadliest Catch” fame but sadly didn’t take any video footage. So in this video we’re back after a winter’s work to re-commission her – think scuba-diving in the Bering Sea – explore the tundra-covered mountains of the island, and get ready for the Arctic.

Stay tuned for Episode 2 on both Cruising World‘s site and on YouTube – it’ll cover our first Bering Sea passage and the wildlife-rich Pribilof Islands!

  5. Congratulations on a great video. You must have been doing a lot of filming along the way. Food for thought for us. It is a great way for people to experience some of your adventures.

    • Thanks so much! We did do quite a lot of filming – I was pretty hesitant to start (didn’t want it to interfere with the actual experience) but I ended up having a lot of fun with it. 🙂 And I hope it does allow more friends and family to get a better sense of what it’s really like out there!
