XL Catlin Seaview Survey Caribbean Expedition: Survey 6 Bermuda was once known as the "Isle of Devils" for very good reason - the treacherous reefs surrounding the island have ensnared many ships that sailed too close to Bermuda's shores, there are hundreds of shipwrecks in the waters surrounding the island. We are here to survey the waters surrounding this isolated island as an extension of our 2013 Caribbean campaign. Whilst in the area we are lodging at, and working closely with BIOS - The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences. BIOS (founded in 1903) is an independent, non-profit marine science and education institute which hosts a full time faculty of oceanographers, biologists and environmental scientists, graduate and undergraduate students. We will also be working closely with the Bermuda Reef Ecosystem Assessment and Mapping Programme (BREAM) and the Bermuda Natural History Museum.
