Fred-Report:

This morning we cruised up beautiful Verrafjord, which is lined by mountains, forests, colorful little farmhouses and grass fields. MS National Geographic Explorer anchored at the head of Verrafjord. Passengers had the options to kayak, join a guided hike or spend some time beach combing and exploring the vicinity on their own. I got a special option this morning: Lisa and her team invited me to a dive! Our Electrician Dino and Baker Magnus got me all geared up. We got into the Zodiac and headed for the dive-site. This time everything worked out really well! I got into the water and went diving!!!



What a great feeling! I found the silence under water amazing! Sadly my dive did not last too long. My zip-log bag was not really waterproof and I got drenchedíK . But I could not really care less: I had a great time under water!




And a short video:


Back on board I went to take a closer look at our Wellness area and made use of the sauna.




That was a good idea and so relaxing! And it has a nice side-effect: I got a dry bud again.



Lisa called the hotel office during the course of the afternoon and informed us, that we should attend tonight's recap and briefing. +

She presented the outcome of our dive and introduced me, Fred, as a member of her team! I am in the film! You can't imagine how proud I am!
