Orientation Day

Allison Taylor, Captain


All aboard had a great day today, full of learning and trying to stay cool! We started the day anchored off Logan International Airport, and after a discussion about seeing and sketching, we spent the morning doing one rotation of orientations including lab safety, engine room and watch standing on deck.

Spend a Semester at Sea

I was supposed to be assistant steward the very first day on the boat, but since everything was chaos and all of the students, including myself, were still trying to find their sea-legs, I missed my chance. After weeks of waiting, the opportunity finally came again

SEA Semester

After a breakfast of cereal and delicious fruit salad (minus the blueberries. I don’t like blueberries - George) (I, unlike George, LOVE blueberries, please don’t take them from me - Amelia), we started today’s classes off early with a guest lecturer from Sea Grant. We learned about ocean acidification.

Goodbye, Orona!

Michelle Simoni, Seattle University

We officially left Orona! Orona was a fun time as there are all the crazy snorkeling stories from the others. I was able to see coral and sea creatures that I have never seen before and it is amazing. I am really grateful with this experience as life on the boat has challenged me and helped me grow.

The sea and the stars


Where to even start… Sheesh there are so many things I could write about, but I’ll keep it to just a few: Orona and the stars on the open ocean.

Orona was nothing short of absolutely spectacular, utterly unbelievable.

This morning, like all of our mornings so far, we woke up to a delicious breakfast made by our wonderful steward, Jared. We then had our daily watch meeting, where we learned to tie a new knot (the square knot!), and went off to do our morning chores.
