Dive the World
BE FEARLESS IN THE PURSUIT OF WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE.
I TOOK RISKS AND LEAPS THAT TAUGHT ME OBSTACLES ARE NOT LIMITATIONS
In 2005 Susan was the first person to scuba dive in unexplored areas of the Antarctic retracing in part, Sir Ernest Shackleton's heroic 1914 rescue mission underwater with Oceanwide Expeditions. This 20-day journey started aboard the Grigoriy Mikheev in Ushuaia then went on to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, where they encountered a hurricane with winds registering at 110mph, then continued on to the Antarctic Peninsula. Susan, along with dive buddy Bill Whiffen in tow, was the first person in the water exploring sites that have never been seen before - seascapes, caverns, icebergs, mammals and their remains from the whaling days. Stops also included visiting a colony of 100,000 King Penguins, a famed Giant Albatross community, studying a variety of penguins and birds, studying icebergs and their evolution and diving with leopard seals. Part of the group consisted of photographers from journals worldwide including National Geographic.
