This voyage was Henry's most famous voyage. Henry and his crew sailed northwest but instead of finding ice flows blocking his path he found a strait which was later named after him, Hudson Strait. his led him to a massive bay, later named Hudson Bay. He sailed cautiously down the coast meeting different tribes that he could trade with. Eventually he sailed into James Bay. Ice flow blocked the safe return of Henry and his crew so they had to remain in James Bay for the whole winter. Once spring had arrived Henry's crew sent him adrift in Hudson Bay never to be seen again. The remaining of the crew set off for England.
Unlike the the voyage before, Henry and his crew sailed south a long the east coast of the "United States". He traveled as far as Chesapeake bay before deciding to turn back. On the trip back Henry sailed into New York Harbor. There he and his crew sailed up the river which was later named after him, Hudson River. He would have continued to sail up Hudson River but the boats supplies were run low and so he turned back for England.
A year after his first attempt in 1608, Henry Hudson tried again to find a trade route to the Orient or a northwest passage. He and his crew of approximately 20 men made more progress than the last try but again the expedition was stopped by ice flows.
Henry Hudson was born in the small town of Hoddesdon, England. He was apprenticed to a sailor and learned the art of sailing and navigation. This led him to embark on his first voyage heading northwest.
