The Bouvet Island DXpedition

Early 2018

Our Transportation

For some of us, this will be our 4th trip with Nigel Jolly and his crew.  His vessels and their crews are the hallmark of adventure, coupled with safety and reliability.  Our ship’s schedule prior to our sailing will dictate our port of departure.  When weather permits, we will land our team and equipment on Bouvet by helicopter.

Our Permit

We are pleased to report that the revisions and updates to our longstanding landing permit (2007) have been approved by the Norsk Polar Institute and that an updated landing permit has been issued to us.  The updated permit now specifies our camp site, current dates, current wildlife populations areas, helicopter access routes, and environmental precautions.

Our amateur radio license, also originally issued in 2007 with the call sign of 3YØZ, has been renewed and will be used during our DXpedition in early 2018.


Our Team

The team is the most important element of a DXpedition.  Your leaders are humbled to serve with this amazing group of individuals.  We have great confidence in this team — and you can too.
