The Gojira crew now waits to see if the Nisshin Maru will slow down. Even with the chain, the bulkier prop fouling line is no match for the massive size of the Nisshin Maru.
The Japanese factory ship is headed into the ice.
Gojira’s Captain, Locky MacLean makes the unbelievable decision to continue on and follow the ship. He's risking the fiberglass-built vessel and his crew to do whatever they can to stop Japanese whaling.
If they... (more)
Last time, the Bob Barker was in search of the Nisshin Maru. In its search, the Bob Barker found an iceberg. But it was the Gojira and crew who found the lead whaling manufacturing ship.
Now, it’s time to stop Japanese whaling altogether before the other ships from the Japanese fleet catch up to the Nisshin to protect it.
The crew from the Gojira knows the blood they see pouring out from the side of the Nisshin Maru is from a freshly-killed whale. As they approach, a voice is heard blaring from the speakers onboard the Japanese vessel warning them to stay away from the ship... (more)
What doesn't make sense? Everything. All these years gone by and still the same issue. How does one recognize real love? I'm not without some bit of understanding. Yes, I know that love is more than an emotion. I know love is action and sticking through the worst of times and not just enjoying the ride...er relationship. But I'm sick. I really mean it. My stomach gets all turned upside down even thinking about it.
Why can't love be like a great meal? I love shrimp cocktail, Caeser salad, T-bone steak or Prime rib. And oh, let's consider a nice chocolate mousse. But I can't find it made... (more)
The Yushin Maru actively tries to clip the Gojira’s stern. However, video from the Yushin Maru that is released later to the public is shown with comments that state it was the Gojira that tried to cut the ship off.
Pottsy, one of the small motor boat’s captains is now ready to deploy another prop fouler line to stop the Yushin Maru.
As they come across the front of the ship, it's the small boat that is clipped by the Yushin Maru.
Radio calls go out to the small vessel. Luckily this time both the crew and the motor are intact.
Pottsy calls into the Bob Barker... (more)
The Steve Irwin is on its ways back to port for fuel and supplies. The first phase of the campaign has not been a success. They know the Japanese whalers could be cutting up fresh whale meat while the crew is in port.
The Bob Barker must now take the lead in search of the Nisshin Maru, the whaling manufacturing ship. But they can’t go anywhere as one of the Japanese whaling ships, the Yushin Maru is on their tail.
Luckily for the Bob Barker crew, help is on the way. After nearly 4,000 miles round trip, the Gojira is back out, headed to help the Bob Barker lose its tail and find... (more)
Captain Paul Watson must decide to follow the Nisshin Maru into the path of ice or go down around and hope the Japanese whaling ship and its crew don’t double back to continue whaling.
Watson decides he would rather go around and possibly lose them rather than possibly damaging the Steve Irwin vessel and losing the opportunity to stop their whaling for the entire whaling season.
After the helicopter pilot, Chris Aultman flies 5 trips – 9 hours flying during a 19-hour day, Aultman has to stop and rest. He is exhausted.
Captain Watson is now afraid that he has also... (more)

An anonymous tip gives the crew of the Steve Irwin a chance to locate the Japanese whaling factory ship, Nisshin Maru. But because the tip is 2 days old, the crew is working within a 200-mile radius.
With this guide, helicopter pilot, Chris Aultman takes to the sky in search of the Nisshin Maru. It's 5:00 am. Despite the tip, the Steve Irwin is running out of fuel and they are alone.
Two thousand miles from the Steve Irwin, the Sea Shepherd's fastest vessel, the Gojira is stuck in port. Problems with the motor still persist.
Meanwhile, the Bob Barker is tailing... (more)
As they approach, it becomes clearer that it's a life raft of some sort. You can hear the tension mount as crew members are holding their breath wondering what they might find.
The life raft has been destroyed - ripped to shreds. As they finally approach the remains, the crew is concerned that they will find bodies. Finally, close enough to see what is left from the destroyed, black life raft, they only find the raft. No bodies are found. There may still be hope for the crew from the Beserk.
The Steve Irwin makes a call into the New Zealand Search and Rescue to give them... (more)
Last week, two crew members from the Bob Barker suffered hypothermia after waiting in small motor boats for more than 12 hours. Finally, all Sea Shepherd crew are now back on board the Bob Barker.
Meanwhile, the Steve Irwin has received a distress call from the New Zealand Search and Rescue. They are asking for the crew onboard the Steve Irwin to help find the five missing crew members who were onboard a Norwegian-registered yacht, the Berserk.
The Berserk sent a distress call approximately 18 nautical miles (33km) north of Scott Base in the Ross Sea. This is the point of... (more)
