Overall, how was your trip?

The highlight was the rescue of the Ioffe. The wildlife was everything I hoped. I enjoyed meeting the people, particularly our on-boat Ted. He had a good eye for wildlife and an authentic way of 'being'. He shared with us his polar bear clothing and seal, narwhal and char. I would tell my grandchildren about how healthy the polar bears are and what the Inuit foods tasted like. And what the Inuit were like that we visited, since this is likely to change rather rapidly. I also enjoyed Greenland very much.

In one sentence, what did you think of the Arctic? Did it live up to your expectations?

a new experience for me and so very good. I would have liked more exposure to Arctic peoples and their crafts

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

Yes I enjoyed One Ocean, and particularly that they hired native guides for all our on-shore expeditions. I was not much of an ornithologist but my daughter really loved that aspect. The cabin was fine.I really found the on-lne part difficult to navigate and you were unresponsive to my request to to forward e-mails to my daughter Jenna who does not live in the same city
