Ocean Starr, ex David Starr Jordan, has been a work horse for NOAA and science. So far she has spent an estimated 8,949 days at sea and sailed more than 1.3 million miles. Researchers aboard the vessel measured and weighed 1,000 sea turtles, took 27,000 photographs using remotely operated vehicles (ROVS), and conducted 27,000 oceanographic sampling casts, 22,000 plankton tows and 4,700 fish trawls. The ship has participated in expeditions extending from ALASKA to Peru and the Galapagos Islands. This past year, Ocean Starr was chartered to a private non-profit studying the Pacific gyre (floating plastic), base-lining and recording this danger to our oceans.
Alaska science charters June/July 2017 are available for charter revenue for a purchaser.
OCEAN STARR should be seriously considered by the hard core adventurists.
