Today marks our third and last day amongst the I-Kiribati of the Phoenix Islands. The morning marked a last and intensive run of shore, snorkeling and science missions upon the island as well as in its beautiful lagoon. After a morning of snorkeling amongst the reef sharks that patrol and police the fish throughout the wreck of the President Taylor steam ship and Manta Rays that silently guard the lagoon entrance between the dredged channel of Spam Island and quiet remains of a long forgotten hotel on the opposing shore; the crew of the Seamans was given a most fond farewell not likely to be forgotten.

Hello, and welcome aboard the Corwith Cramer!

My name is Buckley Willis and I am more than pleased to be reporting to you live from the Bay of Biscay. This is some exciting news because it means that we one wave closer to our next destination, Lisbon, Portugal! And since I, and most of the crew, have never been to Lisbon the spirit aboard the ship could not be any higher.

Hello Family and Friends of Aloha ‘Aina – a collaborative study abroad program with Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) and Sea Education Association (SEA).

After a brief, yet influential and important week of classes at Hawaii Loa campus on the island of Oahu the students have now started to explore the islands of Maui and Lanai.  As we did on Oahu, the students are experiencing and learning about the history, culture, traditional practice and science of the Hawaiian Islands and wrestling with complex issues of conservation and resource management in an era of multiple stakeholders and competing, economic and cultural incentives.
