The seas had calmed down enough for the polarcirkel boats to make it out to Isfjord radio to pick us up. The boats are alot like zodiac boats except they have a hard plastic bottom and can fit more people. They are small however and ride close to the water, so getting wet is expected. All of our bags are either waterproof or covered in a plastic bag.
People on the boat ready to go.
We saw a group of white whales or beluga whales and 4 arctic puffins diving for food. Of course, lots of great scenery on our way back to Longyearbyen.
Simon and I had the great fortune of being able to make another run out to Isfjord radio to pick up the remaining bags with Monica, the logistics person from UNIS. We helped fill gas into the boat and then rode out.
So Long, Isfjord Radio!
