Jim has been a certified boat handler for 16 years. He truly loves to explore and experience wildlife on their terms. He respects an animal's space and nature, even if it means backing up or watching from a distance. His enthusiasm knows no bounds!"
What keeps you returning season after season?
"The wildlife. The shear adventure of it all. The looks on faces when people see the pristine vastness, scale and beauty of Antarctica for the first time."
If you could time travel, which historic expediton would you join, and why?
"The Apollo Moon Missions captured my imagination as a boy. The Lewis and Clark Expeditions mapping and exploring North America. To have seen North America first hand in all its rugged glory piques my imagination like nothing else."
Jim's advice to Polar Travelers
"Go now! We need polar ambassadors. The future of the the Polar Regions depends on us."
