Ocean Classroom 2017: Spectacular Dolphins and Bioluminescence


October 17, 2017:

Today was another day of high seas and strong winds. We sailed all day and are planning to make it to Savannah by noon tomorrow. Things seemed to be getting a little monotonous on the Roseway until we were given a show by a school of dolphins jumping from wave to wave. All of us crowded to the bow of the ship and cheered. I even heard Ben say, “Oh my God, I can’t believe this isn’t Sea World!” They stayed with us for 30 minutes in the morning then returned to the ship at night to give us an even more spectacular show in the bioluminescence  where they looked like torpedoes weaving through the waves. All in all it was a great way to stay entertained at sea and something I will never forget.
