Polar Star

    Newer Older

    Our icebreaker Polar Star somewhere on the Antarctic Peninsula. We ended up on this vessel after our original ship, Ocean Nova, got into an accident on the Antarctica. Also, we got a brand new captain, as the previous one hurt himself badly in a storm when crossing Drake's Passage. March 2009.

      Just spent 12 days on the Polar Star exploring Antarctica. She's a great ship and you've really captured her beauty here.

      You can see how this ship will slide down from the North Pole if there is no ice to slow it down.
