Gone Floatabout

Lucky to live on a boat!


Arctic Voyage Video Stories

The full series is coming out one per month on Cruising World‘s website! And we’re also posting them on our YouTube channel. Here they are in reverse chronological order:

Episode 2: Aleutians to Pribilof Islands, Bering Sea, Alaska (July 2015)  Our first passage in 2015, north in Alaska’s Bering Sea to the windswept but wildlife-rich Pribilof Islands. Check out some great footage of puffins and fur seals, and witness Fourth of July in what’s got to be one of the world’s coldest ball-fields!


Episode 1: Dutch Harbor, Alaska (June 2015) The story begins in the storm-tossed Aleutian Islands. In 2014 we sailed our wooden boat Celeste from Washington State to Dutch Harbor of “Deadliest Catch” fame; here we’re back after a winter’s working in Switzerland. We re-commission Celeste – think scuba-diving in the Bering Sea! – explore the tundra-covered mountains of the island, and get ready for the Arctic!
