To Bimini and Below: Exploring the Straits of Florida
We've gathered some of the best clips from our first two dives in the Straits of Florida, off the coast of the Bahamas. We investigated a number of previously-unexplored ridges and troughs, covered with coral, sponges, and lots of other undersea creatures.

This cruise will focus on the discovery of new cold-water ecosystems and improved understanding of underwater geological hazards and processes. The Straits of Florida is a trough that separates the Florida Peninsula from Cuba and the Great Bahamas Bank. Due to the differences in geological, oceanographic, and chemical processes within this region, the deep water contains some of the greatest species richness in the Atlantic Ocean.
