We partnered with the RCGS in the past on projects of significant importance to the Canadian Arctic, such as:
Victoria Strait Expedition 2014
We are delighted that Sir John Franklin’s fabled lost vessel, HMS Erebus has been found in the Northwest Passage in September 2014. One Ocean Voyager/ Akademik Sergey Vavilov, one of our expedition cruise ships that was offered to the Royal Canadian Geographic Society for the Victoria Strait Expedition 2014, has been cruising the glacial waters with three other research ships operated by the search partners.

Louie Kamookak is an Inuit historian whose years of dedicated research and focus on traditional Inuit oral history helped find the lost Erebus. He was awarded an Erebus medal by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society at the Royal Ontario Museum, and was also recently part of Can Geo Talks 2016, ‘Inuit Oral Tradition and Franklin’. Louie follows this oral tradition to share the stories from his grandmother in hopes to further solve one of the greatest polar marine mysteries that have helped to shape the Canadian landscape. With a reputation for innovation and quality expeditions we are a proud sponsor of Louie’s Humahuk Expedition. READ MORE
