On-board Diary: Setting sail at last!

I’m happy to report, along with the rest of the crew, that the Oceana Latitude has officially set sail for the Gulf of Mexico.

First stop…Key West! About 18 hours away for a vessel that cruises at approximately 11 mph.

Oceana will work with its ROV and specialized divers to document bottom habitat and other marine life that could be in danger if oil is captured by sea currents and transported towards southern Florida or if another oil spill occurs in this area in the future.
