July 26: Dive Cancelled

Unfortunately 25-knot winds have rendered it unsafe to dive today, so the dive is cancelled. Weather permitting, we will dive on Retriever Seamount tomorrow, July 27, deploying the remotely operated vehicles at 8:30 a.m. ET and descending to a depth of approximately 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) to explore Retriever Seamount, one of the four seamounts within the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument.
