Alien baby? No, ocean sunfish! Often called mola molas, these fish are the heaviest bony fish in the world, some are as heavy as 1000kg! These open ocean swimmers primarily eat jellyfish, which they eat a lot of to keep up their weight...I encountered this one swimming at surface in the middle of Monterey Bay #seamoments🦈 #monterey #alien #ocean #pacific #NorCal

Fun finds in the kelp beds just a smidge outside the harbor, a nudibranch.  Later in this paddle we were watching a humpback breach (rather close) and saw a huge flock of birds stretching for miles; it was an amazing paddle for wildlife.  And an amazing week  with humpbacks hanging out and out & around the harbor 🐳

Do you know how to use a compass? OSO students practice finding the location of the boat using triangulation from compass measurements they take from the boat! Photo by @jazzper22 #oneillseaodyssey #oneill #marinebiology #sailing #santacruz #compass

Alumni Spotlight,
Andres Salgado, former OSO student returns 14 years later now as a 6th-grade teacher to bring his own class out to the catamaran!

Andres, why is this program so important?
“Well it’s the first time on a boat for many, some of them haven’t even been to the beach! The kids remember these lessons better because it’s a different environment, they get to see things in person, not in front of textbook or computer screen.” #oneillseaodyssey #oneill #teamoneill #marinebiology #santacruz
