There were many leaders of this trip - all were outstanding in their knowledge, competence and enthusiasm. Their briefings at meal times helped to create a team spirit amongst the group, not bad for a group of 80 people, and created a great atmosphere which enhanced the trip further. To name but 3.
Paul Goldstein - exceptional character, very entertaining and consistently challenging everyone to think about their photography, new angles, new shutter speeds, (old shutter speeds - caught us out on that one!), creative use of aperture etc etc.
John Rodsted - outstanding leader; through his team ensured all guests enjoyed a safe cruise, particularly during the zodiac and land activities. It is to their credit that at no time did these more hazardous activities seem in any way dangerous.
Captain Beluga - the man in charge of the ship and ship's crew. He got the ship to parts other ships could not reach. Did so safely, skillfully and with due regard to the bears' well being.
Thanks to these plus all the other staff and crew for making the trip so successful and memorable.
