HISTORIC CRUISE SHIP VISIT.
The Clipper Adventurer, dubbed a superb expeditionary vessel, recently anchored just off Bartica with more than 100 tourists who were on a 16-day cruise through the jungle rivers of South America, reports The Guyana Chronicle (March 26, 2002). Tourism Director Tessa Fraser hailed the coming to Guyana of the cruise ship, which resulted from efforts of the local Evergreen Adventure Tours that coordinated the venture with Zegrahm & Eco Expeditions of the U.S. The voyage would be the first ever by an international passenger vessel up the mighty Essequibo River. The tourists, aged 50-85 and mainly Americans, flew from Miami to Brazil where their adventure trip began.
