Science & sea stories…Join us for the joys, triumphs and hardships of conducting science while under sail. Your guide, Dr. Schell, takes you on a voyage around the world’s oceans with Sea Semester students. Hear the sounds of humpback “whale singing” on the Silver Banks. Witness the discovery of a lost species of Sargassum threatening the Caribbean. Watch students swim with sharks while studying the second largest “coral bleaching” event ever recorded.
