Crystal hires accomplished expedition leader David Sinclair

Crystal Expedition Cruises appointed seasoned explorer David Sinclair as expedition leader for Crystal Endeavor, arriving in August 2020.

Special expertise in the polar regions

Sinclair has spent more than two decades traversing all seven continents with special expertise in the polar regions. He has shared his knowledge and passion for wilderness discoveries with travelers on expeditions to the Antarctic Peninsula, Ross Sea, Adelie Coast, South Georgia, Macquarie Island, the Falkland Islands, Greenland, Svalbard and the Canadian Arctic.

Sinclair will be involved in the planning and development of Crystal Endeavor's shore excursions, as well as leading a team of skilled expedition guides and experts.

'David has climbed the highest peaks north of the Arctic Circle, skied across Greenland and become an avid naturalist and nature photographer during his career,' Crystal President and CEO Tom Wolber said. 'The adventures that guests will have with Crystal Endeavor will be simply breathtaking, with many sites and experiences that top travelers’ bucket lists, as well as unexpected thrills that will present themselves along the journeys. David is an expert in identifying and maximizing such opportunities and making unforgettable moments possible for travelers.'

Sustainability focus

Wolber added that Sinclair's focus on sustainability and increasing awareness about the earth’s most remote habitats 'complements Crystal’s own commitment to doing our part.'

Sinclair and the Crystal team are conducting comprehensive site inspections in some of the global destinations featured on Crystal Endeavor’s itineraries. This includes meeting with community leaders, port authorities and government officials to create immersive experiences that showcase the heart of each locale while taking special care of the environmental, sustainability and cultural sensitivity protocols.
