Coral Sea Photos 2013

Our mission: To explore Coral Sea reefs and islets, film their exotic beauty and wildlife, and compare from a layperson’s view any changes we perceived from our previous visits out there in the 70s and 80s. Winter is not a good time for such an undertaking, the SE trades are reinforced during June, July, and August, and strong wind warnings are issued for the greater portion of those months. Be that as it may, we had our own time restraints, plus we wanted to film the seabird winter breeding season.

  1. Fabulous photos you guys. Nice to be linked into your site and catch up with your goings on every now and again.
    You may be in Hobart when Aurora Australis gets in from Casy Base Antarctica on Wed morning. She has a few friends of mine on board who were rescued off the Akademik Shokalskiy.
    Congrats on another grandson. Would love to see you again someday. Jude – hope the knee is cooperating with your plans.
    Doing my final Oral exam in 3 weeks for Skipper M5 and MED 3. It’s been a 2 year jaunt. I did The North West Passage a summer 2012. Nova Scotia to Newfoundland to Greenland then west through the passage following Amundsons route. Made our way to Aleutians..pulled out in Homer. 6,000nm in 5 months. Lots of ice. Not sure if you visited my blog.
    Anyway hope you two are well.
    All for now.
    Much love
