Excited to launch the Swift Pacific Adventure. Doc & Ceci White are heading off on another voyage, with our film crew, aboard Beneteau’s Swift Trawler 47. Join us as we explore our own backyard – the coastal Pacific. The newly launched Swift Trawler 47 has departed Seattle and is enroute to San Francisco, where the Ocean Magic Team will begin the San Francisco to San Diego leg. The Adventure includes exploring stunning coastal marine habitats, and the Channel Islands. It’s been an unusual year so far for viewing creatures who have wondered into local coastal waters - blue whales and Guadalupe fur seals have been spotted off Long Beach and Dana Point. We look forward to sharing photos and videos on this website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and BeauteauAmerica’s SwiftPacifcAdventure.com
Doc's July Update, from Pack Creek, Alaska:
Doc White captures a brown bear deep in prayer:
Lordie, when are those salmon gonna start runnin’…
Much excitement surrounds the sporadic spotting of Humpbacks as we make way from Hoonah to Sitka, Alaska.
Doc reports seeing many large cruise ships enroute to Sitka, perhaps the busy passages send the whales to less trafficked areas. Stay tuned, the salmon will be runnin’ soon….
In the heart of the Great Bear Sea, Glendale Cove, British Columbia:
…Doc spots a couple of grizzly bears on the beach so we launch the big tender Louisa. We head in their direction while Chris (the skipper) remains on board to keep an eye on the anchor in the strong wind. One of the bears, a young male, continues grazing on sedge grass and pays little attention to us, allowing us to approach quite close as we take numerous photos and video.
