It was with heavy hearts that we learned of the death of our esteemed colleague and friend, Dr. Tony Whitten in early December. He was and will always remain an inspiration to the SeaTrek spirit of adventure and exploration, and we will miss him dearly. Here he is in the image above looking dashing in goatee and sarong alongside one of SeaTrek's owners, Marla Araki, on a recent trip to Raja Ampat aboard his beloved Ombak Putih. His obituary in the Guardian newspaper linked here can convey his life and times better than our words. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and all those who had the privelege of sailing with him, including our crews and everyone at SeaTrek. Rest in Peace, Tony.
