The Corwith Cramer operates in the Atlantic Ocean.
January: She begins the year in Key West, Fl., where she goes on a 5 day colleague trip followed by a short yard period.
February - March: In the beginning of February, she goes on an 11 day trip with the Williams/Mystic Program from Key West to Key West. In mid-February, she begins a SEA Semester in Key West that ends at the end of March, back in Key West. This 6-week trip around the Caribbean will include at least one port stop. In the past, these ports have included, Samana, Bahamas, Dominica and Jamaica.
March-April: The next 6-week SEA Semester leaves from Key West and ends in St. Croix in early May. This trip has had port stops in Samana, Montserrat and Jamaica.
May- June: In mid-May she will begin the 6-week Marine Biodiversity Semester leaving from St. Croix and ending mid-June in Woods Hole, MA. Following her arrival in Woods Hole she will participate in sails for the alumni reunion and then the 10 day WHOI-MIT program.
July-August: Cramer will spend the summer up north operating around the waters of Cape Cod with the Oceanography of the Gulf of Maine and Science at SEA high school programs, and the Thoreau scholar program.
September: September brings another Williams Mystic 11 day program, ending up in Rockland Maine, where the boat spends a month for maintenance.
October: She comes back to Woods Hole to pick up the Fall 1 students. This trip brings the boat south for the winter. She has a long first leg to the Caribbean, where she might first stop in Dominica before finishing the trip in St. Croix.
November - December: The students of the last SEA Semester of the year with our Documenting Change in the Caribbean Program join the ship in St. Croix just after Thanksgiving and finish in Key West. In the past, port stops on this trip have included Samana, Dominican Republic and Jamaica.
These are some of the stops that we have visited in the past, but the captains are often trying to visit someplace new, so the port visits change from year to year.
