Susan R. Eaton

A geoscientist, journalist and explorer, Susan R. Eaton studies the interplay of plate tectonics, oceans, glaciers, climate and life in polar regions.

A Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, Susan explores the world’s oceans—from Antarctica to the Arctic—in the snorkel zone, a unique land-sea-ice-air interface where charismatic animals and snorkelers comingle.

In 2018, Ocean Geographic named Susan one of the “Ocean’s Best” 18 most influential women leaders in ocean conservation.

Twelve years ago, Susan suffered a scuba diving trauma that landed her in a hyperbaric chamber for three days, ending her 30-year diving career. Undaunted, her up-close-and-personal relationship with the ocean—which had included studying marine biology and teaching scuba diving—didn’t end in the hyperbaric chamber…

Redefining her relationship with the ocean, Susan has snorkeled with thousands of chatty belugas Hudson Bay and with docile manatees at Crystal River, Florida. She’s snorkeled in the Galapagos Archipelago where sea turtles, sea lions and nurse sharks outnumber snorkelers. In Haida Gwaii, she’s assisted the Haida Nation, snorkeling northern rivers to count salmon migrating to their ancestral spawning grounds. Susan has come face-to-mask with charging 1,400-pound leopard seals in the Southern Ocean—so close, in fact, that she could count the freckles on their upper palates and inspect their tri-serrated teeth which dispatch 30-pound penguins in mere minutes.

On Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, Susan was honoured to be included in the book by Paulina Cameron, entitled “Canada 150 Women: Conversations with Leaders, Champions and Luminaries.”

In 2015, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society named Susan one of Canada’s top 100 modern-day explorers and trailblazers. A year later, the same organization named her one of Canada’s 25 greatest female explorers.

The 2014-2018 Sedna Epic Expedition

WOMEN WANTED: We’re delighted to announce a winter snorkel expedition and women’s leadership program to Tromsø, Norway, November 22-December 1, 2020, with expedition partner Waterproof Cruises & Expeditions.

Every winter, snorkelers and wildlife enthusiasts alike witness to one of the great wildlife spectacles on the planet—orcas and humpbacks congregating in remote Norwegian fjords above the Arctic Circle to feed on vast schools of herring.

During November 22-25, the Sedna Epic will run a leadership program in Tromso, Norway, discussing women’s growing representation in exploration and STEMM careers.

During the leadership program we hope to connect with Sami women—much like we’ve connected with Inuit women and girls during Sedna’s expeditions—to better understand this part of the Arctic, its history, geography, and the culture and traditions of its Indigenous people.

Following the leadership program, Sedna's sea women will spend November 25-December 1, 2020, aboard the MV Freya, snorkelling with orcas and humpbacks and undertaking scientific research.

For those interested in joining us, please send your resume and biography to info@sednaepic.com.

The Sedna Epic has no paid employees and volunteerism is a cornerstone of our expeditions. Please tell us how you can assist us in the planning and execution of this expedition—whether it's delivering lectures, doing social media, designing curriculum, undertaking photography and videography or fundraising through grant application and partnerships.

Sedna's non-refundable admin fee ($USD 150) is payable upon acceptance in the expedition. Waterproof's non-refundable, 20 percent deposit (800 Euros) is payable upon acceptance in the expedition. The remainder of Waterproof's fee (3,200 Euros) is due 90 days prior to departure or on August 25, 2020.

Please note that flights, transfers, and hotels and meals in Tromso are not included in the costs described above.
