Crew Wanted! – Arctic Sense 2023 Expedition

We apologise for the infrequent communication due to our busy schedule, but we are excited to update you on the progress of the upcoming Arctic Sense 2023 expedition. With just one week left until we embark on our journey, we are eager to share our latest developments with you.

This expedition is a follow up to the highly successful 2021 Arctic Sense expedition, that will see us return to the North once more to continue our storytelling, research and resulting science communication.

The planned legs for the coming Arctic Sense 2023 expedition are as follows:
Leg 1: The Norwegian Coast – Svalbard to Tromsø [June 1 – June 13]
Leg 2: Tromsø to Svalbard [June 16 – June 28]
Leg 3: The ROV Leg with the Black Whale Team [July 1 – July 19]
Leg 4: The Pack Ice [July 27 – August 13]
Leg 5: Svalbard to Tromsø [August 19 – August 27]
Leg 6: Tromsø Stavanger [August 28 – September 5]

We are looking for a few crew members to join us on some of the legs. We need;
– One crew member for Leg 1
– One crew member for Leg 3
– One crew member for Leg 4
– Two crew members for Leg 5
– Two crew members for Leg 6

We are generally looking for sailors, scientists/researchers, photographers and storytellers. Our ideal crew member is someone that has at least one of these attributes paired with some sailing experience and/or a level of comfort with being at sea for longer periods of time. Overall and most importantly we’re looking for crew members that share Barba’s values and want to be a part of our mission. Details and logistics will be discussed with candidates that are shortlisted.

Please complete this form if you’re interested in joining us. If you’ve previously completed the crew form please send an email to expressing your renewed interest.
