We farewelled our guests at Deep Cove in Doubtful Sound this morning (Sunday 15th May). It has been an exceptionally successful 10 day expedition with multiple landings and small boat excursions every day. The weather has been kind with very little time lost because of rain. The group was particularly interested in the human history of the fiords and so we focused a lot on that. After farewelling them, we headed for Nelson up the west coast. It is a little over 420 nm and we expect to arrive Tuesday evening. The forecast is good and the sea conditions are ideal. We will haul Strannik out of the water at Port of Nelson for annual maintenance and survey.
