Nicola does not only have a long track record of working as a certified Bear Viewing Guide, Zodiac Driver and accomplished Naturalist – but she is also an outstanding and passionate “Retail Therapist”. My first Antarctic experience was as gift shop manager on the Ocean Nova for the 2009/2010. After departing the Ocean Nova I returned to Canada and went on to work as a bear guide at a wilderness lodge in British Columbia.
In previous years, I worked 7 seasons as a Marine Naturalist on the whale watching boats in Victoria, BC.
Come visit Nicola in the Polar Boutique and be welcomed by her infectious smile. If anybody can find you the perfect souvenir or replacement gear you realized you did not bring onto your voyage – it’s Nicola.
