Transcript from ‘Scuba Diving In The Antartic Polar Circle’

C – There’s my expedition ship, The Plancius, ready to take me to the seventh continent. To Aantarctica, famous by travellers such as Scott. I never thought I’d be eating crab in Tierra del Fuego and drinking Argentinian red wine.

Chris and Baz

C – Baz how are you brother?

B – Really well Chris, great to see you. I haven’t seen you in quite a while with the stuff going on, so it’s great to see your face mate.

C – Yes mate, and yours too. How are you feeling about tomorrow.

B – I’m ready, I’m a bit like you mate, I sort of decided to do this quite late, but fortunately I look after myself and do quite a lot of running anyway. My escape tends to be out on the moors near where I live, so I’ve really knuckled down and focused on doing this run in the last couple of weeks properly. It’s probably not the sort of time you should be giving yourself into an eighty mile run but…

Scuba diving in Antarctica. Expedition 2013

The journey south …

As a polar explorer it’s not easy travelling south these days. Not like it was in the early part of the 20th century for the likes of Shackelton, Scott and Amundsen, whose sole preoccupation was sailing scott-free (unless you were Scott or traveling with him) on the open ocean with nothing to occupy their time but stroking huskies and fellow expedition members or surfing Facebook. No, these days you have to battle your way to the Polar Circle through a never-ending stream of frigid bergs hovering below the waterline ready to sink your chances of making Queen, Kate Middleton and Country proud … in the form of airport security, Immigration and KLM stewardesses.

Instead, I opted for a bottle of Jack Daniels from the tax-free shop, only to be told by the shop assistant that I couldn’t take it onwards following my connection in Amsterdam and that I would have to drink it on the hour-and-a-half plane ride. Contingency plan! “What would Scott have done in this situation?” I asked myself.
