Cars. Moving fast and slow. Horns blaring at one another as we cruise down the Carretera Austral. Lights, lots of them. The smell of street vendors selling food items. Elevator music playing bad covers at the hotel. The sounds and smells of the end of an expedition, a return to civilization and the beginning the...

On expedition we often joke that one day rolls into another, and it takes three checks to make sure we have the right date and day of the week written on samples and dive logs. With long (similar) days and no weekend breaks, it’s easy to lose track of time and suddenly you’re on the...

Having found a drysuit that fits me well enough not to leak, we’ve moved on fast and furious from the technical issues of day 1. In fact this morning (Saturday 21st) is the first morning we’ve had a few hours to take stock of samples, catch up on dive and expedition logs and look through...

“When it rains, it pours”. Where does that saying come from? It seemed like a particularly appropriate title for this post. Today has been one of those days on expedition when a sense of humor is a MUST, as is patience, ingenuity and a whole ‘lotta luck! We arrived in Puerto Montt mid afternoon Tuesday,...

Around this time last year my dive buddy and I were returning from the first Patagonian fjords expedition. I was returning home with an amazing sense of achievement and a big smile across my face. Despite some less than ideal weather, we had dived in two fjords in the Northern Patagonian fjord region (Comau and Renihue),...
