Numbers from our Trip

Cassie Sleeper, Mate


We’ve MADE IT!!  We are tied up to the dock in downtown Honolulu and I got to command the vessel when docking which was quite fun and INTIMIDATING.  We arrived Monday and had Tuesday off to relax and re-connect with the outside world and family/friends before starting to get ready for our next leg.

Do you have youngsters in your family looking for good ocean-related books to read over the summer?  Our recent list of adult books recommended by SEA faculty was so well received, we decided to ask them what they recommend for young readers. Here’s what they suggested. (LG = Lower Grades K-3; MG = Middle Grades 4-8)

From the SEA Galley: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ashley Look, SEA Steward

SEA Semester

Here is one of our favorite chocolate chip recipes. It’s peanut butter- chocolate chip, its delicious, and just so happens to also be gluten free, not that you would know. They are so tasty!

If you make them, we’d love to know if you liked them and to see pictures shared on social media!

No need to fear, autonomous data collection is here!

Ella Cedarholm, Assistant Scientist,


These days, our global demand for science is apparent. We sit on the edge of our seat awaiting the results of the newest coronavirus treatments, relying heavily on scientists working worldwide to provide hope for our future. This is the short-game - we’re in the weeds and need a solution yesterday.

Party hats and cake all around!!!!

Cassie Sleeper, Mate


Today is officially 30 days since we left New Zealand! One of the ways we know that it’s been 30 days is all of the music we had downloaded on our phones from Spotify has expired (a heavy sigh was heard around the ship)

A Year in Four Weeks

Kylie Wiegel, Steward

SEA Semester

Once on the boat, the concept of time seems to slip away from all of us. Days don’t make sense. Recalling events and approximating how long ago they happened takes effort. This trip, we decided to take advantage of that. As previously written by the lovely Sonia, we experienced an Easter-ween celebration taking part in both Easter and Halloween festivities.
