James William Stuart Thomson is named for the first and only all-steel sailing schooner constructed in Canada. The James William, built by J. W. Carmichael, three-masted and 399 metric tons, was launched at New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1908, effectively presaging Jimmyís own launch into the cruise industry only 102 years later.
Born in St. Johnís, Newfoundland, Jimmy is a marine biologist with keen interests in scuba diving, journalism and photography. A summer internship at Vancouver Islandís Bamfield Marine Research Station in 2009 provided ample fodder for his first, in-preparation juried research publication on sea slugs, a subject dear to his heart. (Just ask!). His experiences as culture editor for the St. F.X. university newspaper acquainted him with the lively arts and music scene in Nova Scotia and led him into some notable adventures on the road. (Donít ask.)
In his spare time, Jimmy loves to be on the ocean.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
