Bahamas 2014: Leaving Miami

Aquarium divers have just returned from a trip to the Bahamas to collect fish destined for the Giant Ocean Tank. Over the next couple posts, they'll share pictures and information about interesting fish and explain what it takes to transport fish from the Bahamas to Boston. Today's post about setting out toward Bahamas comes from Chris.

After 3 days of boat prep and awaiting the arrival of our trip participants, it's time to get the show on the road. So how actually do we get ourselves from downtown Miami to the Bahamas?

We started here (the white dot in the center-left of the map below) at 7:00 AM, heading down the Miami River and out into the Atlantic Ocean.

About 5 hours later, we were in the amazingly blue waters of the Bahamas near Bimini.

Time to start diving!
