Western Flyer at sea

The R/V Western Flyer steams out into the Monterey Bay heading towards La Paz, Mexico. In February 2012 MBARI returned to the Gulf of California for a 12-week-long expedition. The R/V Western Flyer is a 117-foot small water-plane area twin hull (SWATH) oceanographic research vessel. Accommodations are provided for a combination of 26 crew members and scientists in 14 staterooms located on the upper deck. Photo by Todd Walsh
