Spring 2017 Voyage Arrives in Hawaii

SP17 Hawaii Arrival graphic

Aloha from the island of Oahu! We arrived to Honululu, Hawaii at 0800 on Thursday, Jan. 12. The shipboard community will enjoy a sunny day with a high of 87°F and a low of 66°F. All staculty (faculty/staff) and students will venture out on either a field class or field program as no independent travel is permitted for this quick trip. Nevertheless, we’ll be hiking, biking, kayaking and more. Many participants will be hopping on one of the five shuttles running to Walmart to pick up any last-minute items. On-ship time is 2100 and the ship will depart at 2300 for the 10-day trek to Japan!

‚ÄúI‚Äôve been to Hawaii once before. I had gotten really excited to go snorkeling in this one spot, and we didn’t end up getting to go. I recently found out that my field class for Oceanography takes us to snorkel and study organisms in that exact bay, so I‚Äôm super happy to have the opportunity to experience that.‚Äù ‚Äì Mitch Brumfield, Old Dominion University
