Baffin Bay

Aug 10, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer

After bidding farewell to Greenland yesterday we struck out across the famous Baffin Bay, named for William Baffin, the 17th century explorer who set out in search of the Northwest Passage for England. Motoring at a steady pace, we filled the day with bird-watching and informative lectures about many different aspects of the Arctic. The fog came and went and every once in a while, a huge iceberg would quietly float by.

About the Author

James Hyde


James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
