Very knowledgeable and approachable. Shackleton story. Sarah/Mauricio leading Kayak were amazing team. Matt the leader was very good. In fact everyone from Staff was amazing.
Tell us about the Kayaking
Everyone should do it. It was different perspective.
Tell us about the Camping
Everyone shall do it to get close to Shackleton and everyone else who attempts south pole destination. We still knew where our next meal is going to come from and those guys on the ice crossing the continent did not.
Tell us about the MS Expedition
Cabin was very good. Nice showers. Comfortable beds and excellent cabin service by Jojo.
It would be great to have Parka jackets with bottom part having elastic string to tighten with. It shall improve overall look of the Parka jackets and trap more air. Functionally the Parka's are great and does not make you feel cold at all. These suggestions is only for aesthetics of the parka.
Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?
You cant help but question how the wild life is supporting itself in these hostile environment. The more I read about Sir Shackelton the more I question what odds they went through and everyone survived. Great leadership
Was there anything else Swoop could have done for you to help you prepare for your trip?
Nothing much. Covid test protocol could be well communicated stating the test will be conducted by operator the day before and there is no need to get one by paying out of pocket.
