I just loved this little jaunt. Zodiac ice breakers!
I don’t know if you can tell from the picture but typically for each disembarkation the first zodiac from the ship took a gang plank complete with a railing along one side so none of us would get wet toes during the landing process. Here they even added a length of carpet so us poor old dears wouldn’t slip on potentially slippery rock!
Our ship was able to get into fairly shallow bays and narrow fjords at it was a small ship and has a daft of only 3.40 meters.
