San, welcome to the forum. Nice pictures, were you in a land vehicle to get these pictures of the bears.?

Thank you dock

Bears pictures have been made from the ship or from a dingy, exept for one series.

With this one.

We were visiting the ruins of Smeerenburg, that was a dutch whale hunter town during the 17th century. Anyway... We were walking along the shore and the bear suddenly appeared swiming amongst small icebergs. It went out of the water just 30 meters ahead of us.

That was a bit scary. It circled us, probably evaluating if we could provide a good meal for him. Apparently not, so then it walked away and eventualy got back in the sea.

There was a pregnent woman in the group, I think she got so scared that she almost gave birth on the ice, hehe.

Sorry again for my poor english.
