Follow in the footsteps of the great explorers as you transit the Northwest Passage from western Greenland to the Canadian Arctic, observing polar bears, walruses, seals, and seabirds.
Dan has spent the last 10 years in Seward, Alaska, as a kayak guide, mountain guide, naturalist, and captain of a 150-guest tour boat, looking for whales, seals, puffins, and glaciers. Dan studies acoustic killer whale dialects to identify pods (families) by their calls, and is currently working on a Masters degree thesis on killer whale foraging habitat. In addition, Dan has performed improv comedy, flamenco guitar, and fire juggling! Don't expect to see the fire juggling...
