Zodiac with tourists, Svalbard
Zodiacs are an essential means of transporting tourists from a cruise ship onto land, or simply "cruising" in the waters around Svalbard. It offers a relatively unintrusive means of approaching wildlife at close quarters. Where necessary, the motors will be shut down to reduce noise, and paddles will be used.
