Meet the Expedition Team

Weve assembled an exceptional team that includes geologists, glaciologists, naturalists, marine biologists, and polar historians. Throughout our cruise, well gather in the lounge with each of them to hear insightful lectures developed to enhance our understanding of this remote corner of the world, and we encourage you to ask them all the questions that come to mind as we explore. Past lecture topics have probed Antarcticas history as a destination for explorers, wildlife of Antarctica, Antarcticas ecology, and the difference between ice formed on land versus the sea. No matter what the topic, were sure to further our understanding of our Antarctic experience when members of our Expedition Team share with us their expertise. Here are just a few of the specialists you can trust with your Antarctic adventure:
Captain Ivan Karavka, Ice Captain
A highly experienced shipmaster, Captain Karavka has commanded vessels of all shapes and sizes including icebreakers, passenger ships, cargo and container vessels. As captain of a Russian icebreaker, Ivan had considerable experience navigating in both Antarctic and Arctic waters. He loves sailing the M/S Andrea along the Antarctic Peninsula, one of his favorite places on earth. When not onboard a ship, Ivan lives in Murmansk, Russia, at the edge of the Arctic Ocean.

Heres what your fellow travelers are saying about Antarcticas White Wilderness
The whole experience was otherworldly! The overwhelming majesty the pristine beauty and solitude the day when we left Paulette Island and the Zodiac wove in and out of the many penguin- and seal-laden small icebergs sheer ecstasy.

Richard later became the program manager for glaciology at the Division of Polar Programs of the National Science Foundation. He has conducted a number of study tour programs for Webster University during the last few years, including Glacier Studies in Austria in 1999, Physical Geography of the Netherlands in 2000 and 2001, and Fire and Ice (glaciology and volcanology) in the Pacific Northwest in 2001.

Antarctica was beyond my expectations. The lecturers and Zodiac drivers did a fantastic job in acquainting us with our surroundings and adjusting our excursions according to the weather. Im so glad we were able to cruise aboard the Zodiacs.

Dr. Gustavo Lovrich, Marine Biology

Gustavo was born in Buenos Aires. Currently, he is a scientific researcher with the National Research Council of Argentina, professor at the Universidad de la Patagonia, and one of the referents of the biological connections of the marine fauna between the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic ecosystems. Gustavo participated as a scientific member of cruises on the icebreakers Irizar and Polarstern in 1987 and 2002, respectively. He is the co-editor of the book The MagellanAntarctic Connection: Links and Frontiers at High Latitudes, coauthor of the book The Sea (So Much Water Was Needed to Dissolve So Much Salt), and author of several scientific articles. Gustavo was a lecturer on board the M/S Andrea during the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 Antarctic seasons.

Damien is a British national, but now lives in Dinan, Brittany, France. Damien taught in secondary schools and outdoor education for 17 years. He has been a leader on expeditions taking young people to Alaska and British Columbia. In December 2005, Damien gave up full-time teaching to pursue what most interested him working in polar regions, studying and teaching maritime history and underwater archaeology, and completing a number of writing projects. He has worked on M/S Andrea cruises since the 2004-2005 season. He first came to Antarctica in 1979 with the British Antarctic Survey as a diving officer, and has experienced three Antarctic summers and two winters on bases at Signy Island in the South Orkneys, and at Grytviken, South Georgia.

We were fortunate to have good weather and more than enough landings. The best activity was the Zodiac ride among the icebergs, through the bergy bits, growlers and slush. The whale sightings made it even nicer!

Seeing glaciers and whales was breathtaking. Traveling to the end of the earth and knowing Im one of very few people to get to do this brought tears to my eyes. This was my top trip so far!
