Ocean Adventures Lorenzo, Max,Lauryn

1st current: Gulf I started my sail from the gulf stream it was windy day out the temperature is about 83 Fahrenheit . We're also going about 9.4 kilometers an hour. The wind is just blowing strongly but it doesn't seem to phase the seagulls they’re just gliding through the air. As they flew over one pooped on the captain's shoulder, he told me to steer around the flock but there was no way to steer that quickly so our encounter there wasn't very pleasant .
1st current: Gulf coast We're on the gulf coast snorkeling to pass the time and we stumble across the craziest looking creature we’ve ever seen. We just took picture and get out of there because of course we don't know what it is. When we got back to the surface we researched it and found that it was a cuttlefish. It was a very interesting encounter. It's amazing what you find when you go exploring in the below 400 ft depths of the ocean .
2nd current: N. Atlantic Drift Now we are in The North Atlantic now which is about 75W and 45N on the map. The weird thing about being on the ocean is seeing rain fall onto the ocean from afar But when we got up close to the cloud we wanted to see how the sea life acted underwater when it rained . We seen Manatees, Sea Lions, and Atlantic Ghost Crabs. The sealife was not affected by the rain.
2nd current: North Atlantic Drift We’ve passed the rain now still cloudy but no rain finally. We’re somewhere along the coordinates of 61 w 38 north . The temperature is somewhat moderate its around 77 f . A seal came up along the boat and went back under . We got out of the boat besides the captain as usual we tried tracking the seal down but there was no sign of it. On the way back we came across some shrimp in a way they look like some kind of sea spiders.
3rd current: Equatorial Counter When we were along the equator we seen turtles, seals, and hammerhead sharks. It was scorching hot well over 100 degrees. We had to endure the heat because of course there were sharks so an attack would have been very likely. we didn't move fast because there wasn't much wind we were going at about 0.03 to 0.06 m/s. Meaning it was a slow and painful journey.

Current 4: At 7 North, 17 W. I believe we just moved onto the North Equatorial current. Water temperature reads approximately 23 degrees celsius, with water salinity around 25. We passed over a very long mid-ocean ridge but it seems we won't be seeing any more interesting topography for a little while. When coming close to the coast of South America for a little bit, we came across a group of manatees swimming in the shallow water. A few crew members threw some vegetables over the side of the boat for them to eat.
Current 4: Moving further down the North Equatorial current, temperatures have risen to 25 degrees celsius. Water salinity remains at 25. No topography has been crossed after the mid-ocean ridge we passed a while back. We came across a sea of tuna early this morning, and they scattered quickly.
Current 5: We are located at 21 North and 120 West in the South Equatorial Current. Water salinity is sitting around 35.2 on the surface, and the temperature is around 23 degrees celsius. We are currently over some smaller sea mountains. We got to see some sea lions chasing after a species of fish that we couldnt seem to identify.
Current 5: At 21 North, 120 West, water temperatures have dropped slightly. Passing by, we saw a few scattered hammerhead sharks, and a sea lion posted on a rock above water. We have passed over no significant ocean topography.
Current 5: The first journal entry is starting off at brazil 30 S 50 W we have to make our way all the way to Melbourne, Australia. The temperature of brazil all together is 22 degrees celsius The animal life you may encounter with is pumas, jaguars, ocelots, rare bush dogs, and foxes. Peccaries, tapirs, anteaters, sloths, opossums, and armadillos are abundant. While we were trying to make our way to Australia we ran into a pumas pumas are dangerous. The second journal entry is explaining how we got through all this stuff the puma was following us because supposedly someone was carrying food and because of that we thought we were being attacked. We was not being attacked.
Current 6 : The second journal entry is explaining how we got through all this stuff the puma was following us because supposedly someone was carrying food and because of that we thought we were being attacked. We was not being attacked.
Current 7 : We are in N. Atlantic Drift making our way to Melbourne, Australia the temperature for the atlantic drift is 22°C , The only life form that we came across that live in the atlantic drift are Whale, Manatees, Sea Lions, Atlantic Ghost Crabs, starfish, catfish, green sea turtles, gray Atlantic sea crabs, penguins, shrimp, redfish, flounders, sea trout and tarpon.
Current 7 : The second journal entry explains how we all saw a sperm whale it was so big like hugeeee!!!! It was very interesting to see while trying to make our way to Australia.
Current 8 : Currently we are in the South Indian we trying to make our way to Melbourne, Australia. The currents from south indian to Australia is 45 S 60 E. The temperature is 25–32 °C (77-90 °F), What happened that was interesting as well is that we came across Stonefish, anemone fish, lionfish and Blue Devils, for instance, prefer shallow waters they were so little and of course attracted to water.
