Here's What Makes Below Deck Adventure So Unique, According to Captain Kerry Titheradge
The Australian captain told The Daily Dish why Below Deck Adventure is like nothing people have ever seen before.
For the first time in the franchise's nearly 10-year run, Below Deck is venturing into icy waters — and according to Captain Kerry Titheradge, viewers of the new show, Below Deck Adventure, are sure to find that the journey was well worth the wait.
Said journey is taking place in the fjords of Norway, and as Captain Kerry told The Daily Dish, he doesn't want viewers to just "see" the breathtaking destination. "I want them to feel," he said. "I want them to feel the adrenaline of the scenery."
The Australian captain certainly did himself. "Norway, it was just incredible," he said. "Even though it looks nothing like Australia, just the people [and] the way people act there, I mean, it was just like being back home. I loved how clean the place was. I loved seeing so many electric cars. That was really cool. The place is just beautiful."
The locale is just one of the many reasons Below Deck Adventure is worth a watch, though. As the name implies, there are plenty of thrills to come this season, from extreme helicopter rides to cave excursions and everything else in between.
Plus, according to Captain Kerry, the guests partaking in the wild activities are equally entertaining themselves. Comparing them to those who appear on other iterations of Below Deck, he said "the guests are so different."
"That was my biggest concern when I did it — what kinda guests am I gonna get?" Captain Kerry explained. "[But] pretty much every single group, I’m in close contact with at least one person...They just [are] people having a good time. And [that] doesn’t mean sitting in St. Tropez — you know, like, sitting and being seen...This is actually getting out."
He continued, "I used to run boats in Australia, and people would come and, like, sit on the sailboat and they had their back to the water and [would] be reading a book. Like, what are you doing? You just missed a dolphin! You just missed a turtle!"
Clearly, that wasn't often the case while filming Below Deck Adventure — which he believes is the show's strong point. Added the captain, "It’s the character of the guests and the location [that] make it so different."
