Ferrying passengers...

back to the Clipper Adventurer at the conclusion of our visit to Nordkapp. At present we are underway to Bear Island (scroll down to earlier post that includes an expedition route map; half-way to our ultimate destination of Svalbard) and we expect to arrive mid-morning tomorrow. Just moments ago we enjoyed a number of white-beaked dolphins running along side the ship as we cruise at full speed to the northwest.

In addition, we expect to make a Zodiac tour of several birding sites in the morning after our arrival and make a landing later in the afternoon for extended hiking and photography. Indeed, expedition leaders are outfitted with appropriate measures to repel polar bears should we encounter any. Stay tuned - the adventure is just getting underway!
