Weighing anchor in two weeks!

#9- PA-103463 On July 17, I’ll be boarding the Ocean Endeavour in Kuujuaq, Nunavik (northern Quebec) and heading west along the south side of Hudson Strait, following in the wake of the Diana, pictured left. — Okay, not quite in the wake of the Diana. She sailed through Hudson Strait in the summer of 1897, making six passes to assess how navigable Hudson Strait was for shipping grain.

One hundred and eighteen years later, the Strait is navigable for tourists.

The only assessments we’ll make on our pass through Hudson Strait is of how gorgeous the scenery is, how fabulous the food is, and how comfy our bunks are aboard the Ocean Endeavour.ocean endeavour

About Season Osborne

I am a writer with a passion for Arctic history. After finding a photo of Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, who claimed the Arctic for Canada in 1909, I was inspired to write my master’s thesis on Bernier’s contribution to Arctic sovereignty. This ultimately led to extensive research into Canadian and ‘foreign’ expeditions to the North, which morphed into my recent book, In the Shadow of the Pole: An Early History of Arctic Expeditions, 1871-1912.
