We're working on a new cruise site

What’s this cruise about? We'll be sharing our adventures at sea while we are on the Research 'cruiseship' Atlantis near the Galapagos Islands. Read about the cool things the observers in the Alvin submersible see each day. We’ll examine all those things in lots of ways, including using the Alvin submersible to go down and actually SEE the sea floor. We’ll also collect rock samples, use a camera that gets towed behind the ship, Towcam, and send down an autonomous underwater vehicle, Sentry, that can take all kinds of samples. On our new site you can learn more about the goals of this cruise.
