Photographer's Note

May 21: Glacier Bay National Park

The National Geographic Quest was inching towards Margerie as we were getting ready to leave. She was much smaller than the Noordam and I thought she was just a daily tour boat when I took her photo. But my internet search revealed that she is a fully stabilized, nimble vessel designed to meet the precise needs of National Geographic-Lindblads unique expeditions.

According to Nichols Bros Boat Builders, the M/V National Geographic Quest was delivered in Summer 2017. The twin-screw diesel ship includes 50 cabins, accommodating 100 passengers exploring Baja, Costa Rica, and Panama during the winter months; and Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Canada during the summer months. The vessel features state-of-the-art expedition technology, including a remotely operated vehicle, video microscope, hydrophone and bow-cam designed for immediate bow deployment to hear and film marine life. The vessel consists of a large outdoor sundeck surrounded by a walkway for complete exposure of viewing surroundings; several dining and entertainment facilities, and a fully equipped fitness and wellness spa.

The workshop for this entry includes:
National Geographic Explorers: The passengers on National Geographic Quest were able to observe the glacier much more closely than we could.
Mast against Margerie: National Geographic Quest's mast against the terminus of Margerie Glacier, which dwarfs the ship.


Mayıs 21: Buzul Krfezi Milli Parkı



Biz ayrılmaya hazırlanırken National Geographic Quest (Ulusal Coğrafi Araştırma) Margerie'ye doğru yavaşa ilerliyordu. Noordam'dan ok daha kkt ve fotoğrafını ekerken gnlk bir tur teknesi olduğunu sandım. Ancak internet araştırmam, National Geographic-Lindbladın zgn keşiflerinin ihtiyalarını tam karşılamak iin tasarlanmış, tamamen stabil, evik bir gemi olduğunu ortaya koydu.

Nichols Bros Boat Builders'a (Nichols Kardeşler Gemi Yapımcıları) gre, M/V National Geographic Quest, Yaz 2017'de teslim edildi. İki pervaneli dizel gemide, kış aylarında Baja, Kosta Rika ve Panama'yı; ve yaz aylarında Oregon, Washington, Alaska ve Kanadayı keşfetmek iin 100 yolcu taşıyan 50 kabin bulunuyor. Gemide, deniz yaşamını duymak ve filme almak iin anında pruvadan harekete geirilmek iin tasarlanmış uzaktan alıştırılan bir ara, video mikroskop, hidrofon ve pruva kamerası dahil olmak zere en son teknoloji rn keşif teknolojisi bulunuyor. Gemi, izleme evresinin tamamen teşhiri iin bir geitle evrili geniş bir aık gneşlenme terası; eşitli yemek ve eğlence olanakları ile tam donanımlı bir fitness ve sağlıklı yaşam spadan oluşur.
