Isabelle is a marine enthusiast from Cornwall, a part of the UK steeped in maritime tradition. She spent a lot of time on the water as a child and grew to have a deep passion for marine biology and the environment. Her love for the ocean led her to the Arctic, where she worked as a whale watching guide and trained as a commercial sailing skipper.
Her vast experience includes working in Iceland, Tromsø and Svalbard, and on traditional sailing boats and expedition ships as Expedition Leader in the East Greenland region. When she’s not on an Aurora expedition, Isabelle works for the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators in Communications, promoting responsible tourism in the region. Isabelle is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others while advocating for the protection of marine life and ecosystems.
A consummate organiser, Isabelle enables expeditioners to take advantage of every possible opportunity that arises. Onboard, she encourages expeditioners to spend as much time outside as possible – the longer you stay out on deck, the more you’re guaranteed to see!
