    Seeing my first whale in the wild was one of the most amazing moments of my life. It's also one of the only times I can remember experiencing the slightly weird phenomena of crying happy tears. That is until yesterday when I saw another one.

    Andy on the Arctic Sunrise at around 04:00, 12/05/05

    The last twenty-four hours onboard the Arctic Sunrise have been a bit of a nightmare. On Sunday afternoon, after two beautiful d... Read more >

  • Endless rolling ocean

    The sea down here is always in motion: always rolling, forming waves and dissolving them, colliding with itself, shifting forms and colors, casting illusions and revealing secrets - it seems more like a million small seas with separate agendas rath... Read more >

  • Life and Work on the Poop Deck

    It's around 8 p.m., and the evening is winding down. We've got a following sea, so the ship is riding pretty smooth right now. In a following sea, the poop deck is the place to be, as you can watch the waves come up on us, and loom high above before o... Read more >

    Hello all -

    Well, we're at sea, a little more than two days out of Cape Town. While stuff is being posted on the website and the campaign has no-doubt updated you, I thought I'd give y'all a note from my perspective.

    In the biggest picture, it'... Read more >

    Over several decades, the U.S. military dumped millions of pounds of weapons of mass destruction into the ocean. Enormous amounts of mustard gas, nuclear material, high explosives, and chemical weapons were dropped into waters near Europe, Japan, and... Read more >

    You want the good news first, or the bad news? Ok, bad news first.

    It's been a tough week for the oceans. First, a report by the World Conservation Congress found that we could lose half of the planet's coral reefs in the next 40 years unless we ta... Read more >
  • menu strikes again

    Blogpost by jhocevar - October 24, 2005 at 6:31
    Earlier this year, Greenpeace tried to inject a little reality - and some humor - into a meeting of U.S. fisheries managers. Our "waiters" distributed a menu of what's missing to managers from NOAA Fisheries, the three multi-state fisheries commissio... Read more >

    On Saturday morning, the sun was shining, the birds were singing and it was a beautiful day onboard the Arctic Sunrise. Tropical Storm Tammy was nothing but a bad dream, and we had finally woken up. Even the seasick gang had emerged from their bunk... Read more >
