One Year Ago

A year ago we on Ocean Watch rolled through Bellot Strait and into ice-free water on our way to complete the Northwest Passage. As of today the passage is completely open, although not the Bellot Strait route this year. The traditional Amundsen route north south through Peel Sound is allowing boats traversing the passage through from both directions as this ice chart shows.
