SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer

Liz Harris, Missouri State University


Hi everyone! I am Liz Harris, a junior studying wildlife biology at Missouri State University (GO BEARS!).  I hope those back home can see how much fun we are having here in St. Croix from the blogs and, if not, I promise it is a lot.

Valeriia Vakhitova, Middlebury College


Hi! My name is Valeriia and I am a Russian (Vladivostok) student from Middlebury College. Since Vermont is land-locked, applying for SEA semester was exciting! I haven’t felt bored for a second during this program. In this blog, I will write in both English and Russian, as I would love for my mom to understand it too.

Julian Scent, College of the Atlantic


Howdy, my name’s Julian. I’m part of the C-289 class like almost everybody else who’s will write on this blog in the next couple months. I’m a senior at College of the Atlantic, and I’m originally from Georgia. So, let me tell y’all about last Wednesday.


Students of Class C-289, Caribbean Reef Expedition, an investigative science and policy semester examining the impacts of human actions on Caribbean coral reef ecosystems and the effectiveness of existing reef management strategies, join the SSV Corwith Cramer in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, on Nov 24th after a ten-day second shore component there. Their voyage ends on Dec. 23rd in St. Croix after stops in Grenada, Montserrat, and Barbuda.

Francesca Whitecross, Middlebury College


Hey! My name is Francesca and I’m part of the class C-289. I’m also a member of Middlebury College’s class of 2023.5. In fact, unlike my classmates, I haven’t started college yet! It definitely was daunting at first to be surrounded by college juniors and seniors who seemed so much more mature and experienced, but I quickly felt like I fit right in, and that’s mostly due to my amazing classmates/shipmates.

Settling Into St. Croix

Benjamin Kochan, Visiting Asst. Prof. Maritime Studies


Greetings from beautiful St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands and thank you for reading the inaugural blog post for C-289 (the “C” stands for our ship, the Corwith Cramer, which will be our home for the 289th SEA Semester voyage).

Final Days

Jeff Schell, Chief Scientist


Much has happened for the Corwith Cramer and her crew over the weekend.  We shifted anchorages to Rendezvous Bay, held final Oceanography Presentations and celebrated everyone’s creativity with a Cramer Art gallery.  That was Saturday!

Snorkel Survey and Water Grubs

Natalie Summers & Ollie Downes


From beach to asphalt to jungle, within ten minutes we conquered all these elements on our way to the old sugarcane mill. The rotting wooden steps that we needed to traverse the hillside were the final obstacle in our way until we reach the old, run down entrance of our destination.

St John, USVI’s Port Stop

Sarah Acker-Krzywicki, A watch


So uhhh, tonight we saw aliens.

Just as I was settling into a relaxing anchor watch after a long day of customs, ice cream, anchoring, swim calls, delicious views, and overly sunny and sweaty cuddle puddles, some more excitement peered around the corner.
