The students, faculty, and crew of S-284, The Global Ocean, have arrived aboard SSV Robert C. Seamans, docked in Auckland, New Zealand. Following two full days of intensive ship training, coupled with excursions to a local indigenous community and the Auckland War Memorial Museum, we will set sail for the Bay of Islands. I’m not yet sure which is more exciting for our group of students: the extraordinary places we plan to visit over the next five weeks, the abundance of marine and terrestrial wildlife we will encounter, or the fact that we eat six times a day. There are worse jobs than mine, I suppose.
