On the 24th of March 1994, a company of 22 students arrived at the Port of Miami to board the SSV Westward for a 6-week journey into the warm waters of the Bahamas and Caribbean Sea. Their adventure was not only in the places which were travelled, but through the experience of life at sea working aboard a sailing vessel, and in learning first hand about the practical realities of scientific study of the sea. The biological and physical properties of the ocean were visually revealed rather than through theory prescribed by a textbook. The geologic nature of the sea floor, became not only a topic for interested study, but an important factor to examine during anchoring and navigating the vessel.
