It’s another warm day on the intracoastal of Fort Lauderdale. But great news! The ROV from Oceana’s Chilean office has finally arrived. After it was loaded on the vessel, the crew spent the rest of the afternoon unpacking several boxes of SCUBAPRO diving gear and making final scheduling arrangements for later in the expedition.

However, we also received some bad news this morning. It appears that the satellite internet and phone system is down. Luckily, the system provider is working around the clock to ensure that Oceana sets sail as soon as possible.
