*Fords Terror, Alaska*
We’ve cheated death!
And by that, we mean we’ve survived entering into an area ominously known as Ford’s Terror. In 1889 a Naval ship dropped off a crew man to explore what looked like a small, shallow inlet by row boat.
On the other side of the small inlet is another massive separate fjord with tons of water. And when the tide changes - alllllll that water has to fit through that tiny inlet which creates monstrous current and standing waves. So massive that they have been surfed!
That poor crewman was named Ford and he’d entered at low tide. When the tide began to rise and water rushed in he was unable to get out and paddled desperately for the next 6 hours against the current and waves to avoid being crushed against the rocks. Ford’s committed rowing allowed him to cheat death and the entrance is now known as Ford’s Terror, a hair-raising pass that can only be entered twice a day.
We were really nervous as we’d arrived 30 minutes after slack tide. Inspecting the entrance from the outside, we didn’t detect too many signs of rushing water so we decided to risk it.
Feeling relieved on the other side of the danger zone, and excited to spend the next few days exploring all the nooks and crannies of Fords Terror, Morgan felt like doing a little shimmy (still wearing her apron after breaking down crab all day!) :) .

Built as a support vessel by the Damen shipyard in Holland, the 67-metre Garcon was delivered in September of 2011. Garcon is equipped with every explorer style tender or toy available. With a Bell 365 helicopter, five large tenders ranging in size from 14 meters to 10 meters, a 4 man submarine, a complete custom diving cabin, and numerous jet skis, wave runners and sea bobs, Garcon is truly a uniquely equipped vessel. She boasts a top speed of 26 knots and a transatlantic range. Garcon is a self-supporting ship that can sail any ocean of the world.
One of the first examples of a hybrid superyacht, Savannah is powered by extremely quiet electric-diesel engines. Another one of the innovations onboard is the underwater observation room letting charter guests see both over and under the sea.

Keep the good times rolling! Know your work culture and live it out loud! 🙌⠀ ⠀
What is culture 🤷🏻♀️ It is a shared belief and value system that employees subscribe to which subsequently drives behaviour. A positive culture will not only attract your “tribe” it amplifies the team’s morale and engagement thereby creating a productive and harmonious work force. ⠀
Culture will happen regardless whether it is planned or not… so why not create a culture to be proud of? ⠀
It only takes a few bad eggs to ruin the culture onboard hence it is important to get culture right onboard from the get go. All crew need to subscribe to the same culture otherwise it gives room for inappropriate behaviours to occur. ⠀ ⠀
How do you maintain a positive culture onboard? ⛵️Our recipe is innovation, adaptability and creativity… ⠀ ⠀
