    By noon Wednesday, everyone (that wasn't sea sick) was having a few laughs at the state of affairs. The ship was rolling and pitching, and people were stumbling down the alleyways like they were drunk (not that we know what that feels like...). It ... Read more >

    It was exciting for me to board the Arctic Sunrise in New York City. The Arctic Sunrise is a working ship and there is so much going on everywhere. There is a lot to be done and everyone does their part in keeping things together.

    I'm still in a stupor; I can't believe I'm actually on the Arctic Sunrise! It's so strange for me, since I don't know anybody, but very thrilling at the same time. The crew is great, very friendly and outgoing. It's literally like a League of Natio...

    After two busy weeks in Massachusetts, we are now making our way to Long Island, New York. We tried to make the six Open Boats we held as exciting as possible, so our supporters felt that they'd gotten their money's worth. Then again, the Open Boat... Read more >

    A friend of my parents works for Greenpeace and was able to get me a position as a volunteer assistant cook onboard the Arctic Sunrise for the month-long tour from Halifax to Miami. I came on the ship knowing little about the organization and expect... Read more >
