Willy and Audrey will share their experiences from a 21 day expedition, including sea kayaking, hiking and even a polar dip with One Ocean Expeditions, a Canadian company based in Squamish, BC. On board a polar research ice strengthened ship, roughly the same length as the Chi-Cheemaun, they travelled from the tip of South American (12 thousand km from Toronto) over the Drake Passage, considered to be one of the roughest seas in the world, to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula last November, which is the southern hemisphere’s spring, on their 5,500 nautical mile journey. Six species of penguins and other wildlife were abundant as well as plants, whales, seals, lots of icebergs and a volcanic caldera. Reminiscent of the Bruce’s rugged east coast in winter, come and find out why Audrey and Willy have embraced Polar travel. Some photo products will be available for sale with 10% going towards the OSFN.
