The Northwest Passage

On Leg 9 of the Canada C3 expedition we set out to cross the heart of the Northwest Passage. We'd heard in some places the sea ice was still thick, and our passage would be difficult. At 5 a.m. on Aug. 21, our Leg 9 participants awoke early to see the ship enter Bellot Strait, a crucial part of the passage. Come aboard for the rest of the passage in our latest video.
