If you’ve been snorkeling with Fury, then you’re probably familiar with Snorkel School. It’s that part of the trip that we gather everyone together and talk about our delicate reef system, the marine life you’re about to see, how to use your gear, and a few safety instructions.

Well, we’ve had the tables turned on us. Our recent Blue Star Operator status from NOAA and partnership with Mote Marine Labs has brought us back to school. Our commitment to coral reef conservation and preservation is steadfast, and it’s been a great education to work with these important organizations.

Our crew recently attended a Blue Star Continuing Education class. To get a taste for what we learned about, check out NOAAs video above about acropora population recovery (aka coral restoration) and the work that scientists are already doing in Puerto Rico. Really cool stuff!
