Richard Jacoby

Richard is a lifelong waterman. He has worked on boats from Nova Scotia to the Caribbean, Central America to Alaska, Antarctica, Svalbard, Iceland and beyond.

Since 1992 Richard has made Seward, Alaska his home base. He has been a captain and naturalist on glacier and wildlife cruises in Kenai Fjords National Park for over 25 years. Richard also works as an instructor with the Alaska Maritime Training Center teaching basic and advanced operations and safety training for professional mariners.
Always drawn towards the spaces at the edge of a map, Richard's interest in travel and all things maritime have made him a persistent student of maritime history and the explorers and navigators whose stories have added texture to that map.
