SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer

James Parker, A Watch


Our crew awoke this morning to find Valentine’s wishes from the mouths of their favorite zooplankton, transcribed and delivered by last night’s A Watch science team. Notes which had been scribbled in the downtime found in a busy watch filled with data processing, galley cleanup, and midnight deployments.

Hey everyone! My name is Jessie and I’m a student on the Cramer! Yay! I’m writing to you from this beautiful spot anchored off of Isla de Culebra. The Caribbean sun is warm, the ocean is glistening, and the clouds are the puffy cumulus kind that makes me think of sugary cotton candy.

Underway from Puerto Rico

Jeff Schell, Chief Scientist


A good night of sleep followed by an amazing breakfast has made for a great day onboard the SSV Corwith Cramer. Let me start with a shout-out to our first student, assistant steward Fiona who supplied us with enough pancakes, fresh fruit (mixed berries) and sausage to power through a full morning of safety training.

A Busy First Day

Craig Marin, Maritime Studies Faculty


Today was our first full day of programming, and it was a busy one. The day started with an early wake up for all hands, breakfast and chores before the students and Maritime Studies faculty (Craig and MJ) headed into Old San Juan for a walking tour of the city and its forts.

Welcome Aboard!!

Allison Taylor, Captain


It’s been an exciting day here on the Corwith Cramer!  This afternoon, the faculty and staff received 20 smiling students to their new home for the next six weeks. It was a typical day here in San Juan, PR, with bright sunny skies dotted with passing cumulus clouds, some darker than others, and some with a little rain in them.


Students of Class C-290, Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean, join the SSV Corwith Cramer in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Feb. 10th.  The voyage ends March in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands on March 18th, after port stops in St. John, St. Martin, Montserrat, Dominica, Bequia, and Grenada.


The first day of February, Saturday, aboard Cramer was full of science and sail handling. The trade winds allowed each watch had the opportunity to practice gybing the ship as land was once again on the horizon.  To prepare for a field trip ashore on, we diligently struck the sails and dropped anchor in Francis Bay on the island of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Another exciting couple of days at sea here on the Corwith Cramer!

Yesterday we had a sketching workshop aboard Corwith Cramer, led by Sketch Biologist and Williams-Mystic alumna Abby McBride F04.  Abby’s work as a science communicator combines her love of biology and sketching.

Greetings from Williams-Mystic aboard the Corwith Cramer!  The Spring 2020 (Williams-Mystic S20) class traveled from Mystic, CT to San Juan, Puerto Rico yesterday. We spent our first evening aboard and most of today getting to know the professional crew, learning about the ship, and doing safety drills.
