Snorkel Survey Surprise !!
Good Morning faithful followers of Cruise C284 Blog! Welcome to the story of our academic and scientific explorations of the Caribbean. Today we stepped off the deck of the Corwith Cramer and visited Cane Bay, St Croix, a popular beach and dive destination on the north shore. Our mission, to practice and refine our snorkel survey techniques, document coral reef health and reef fish and invertebrate diversity, and finally to have a bit of fun at the same time

Welcome Aboard !!
I am happy to report the successful start to cruise C-284 – Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean (CCC). Just moments ago students arrived from various cold destinations around the globe and have convened here in St Croix, USVIs to begin their adventure onboard the SSV Corwith Cramer. Sea bags were quickly stowed and all hands turned to on the quarterdeck for introductions and messages of welcome to their new home.
