The Rus­sian reg­is­tered ship Akademik Ioffe docked in Syd­ney on Thurs­day and re­mained at the wharf un­til early Fri­day morn­ing. The ves­sel was built in 1989 in Fin­land and is listed as a pas­sen­ger cruise ship. Ex­pe­di­tions Online also refers to it as de­signed for po­lar re­search. Its cur­rent role is a tour of Nova Sco­tia as well as Sable Is­land, Que­bec, New­found­land and the French ter­ri­tory of St. Pierre et Miquelon, hop­ing to give pas­sen­gers a view of ev­ery­thing from whales to bald ea­gles and vast seabird colonies. The online re­source ves­selfinder.com lists its re­cent stops as Hal­i­fax, Poland, The Nether­lands and Ice­land. It’s next des­ti­na­tion is France.
