Make friends with wildlife on the
Controversy over the discovery of the Falklands and colonisation by Europeans is always a hot topic amongst locals.
However, these sub-Antarctic islands also draw much attention from the birds and wildlife that stop there annually to breed before travelling on to other places.
This was a demanding seven-week expedition on a high-profile film project for National Geographic. Australis was the PERFECT platform for our 5-person team & our 38 cases of equipment. The ship accommodated our large jib, drones, dive operations and gyro-stabilized shooting platform with ease. With Capt. Ben at the helm, always willing to go the extra 10 yards, we captured incredible footage, achieved all of our objectives & exceeded all our expectations. Australis is small enough to move around quickly & big enough to be safe and comfortable. More than just a work trip, Ben & his crew helped make this the experience of a lifetime.
Thank you for all you endless knowledge over the past month.
Australis crew is spot on in every regard. From exceptional customer service to care of the gear to willingness to be flexible and make the most of the time down south, they are the best overall team yet in my view.
What else I can say, if not for your invitation none of these good news would have happened, so thank you again and the time invested.
