Advanced Spitsbergen with SY Arctica II, 02nd – 20th August 2016

After passing Heleysund, which is always amazing, and enjoying its surroundings, we had to move on. We were already more than half-way through the trip and the west coast still far away. We followed Spitsbergen’s east coast down south, enjoying the scenery in sunshine for a change, and made a stop in Isbukta, where we found a Harp seal, a rare encounter in coastal waters. Then we went around the south cape – skipper Heinrich cut it short by keeping to another challening inshore passage – and into Hornsund.
