From Jean-Michel Cousteau's Expedition Log - Voyage to Kure August 2003
In more than four decades of exploring the world ocean, I have learned with each expedition to expect the unexpected. Our "Voyage to Kure" once again confirmed that for everything familiar, we find the astonishing. This truly was a discovery of a paradox in paradise.

This morning, at 0900 hours the C Team, renamed very quickly by its members to the "SEA" Team, made its second dive. The first dive was off the deck of the Searcher, with team members Jean-Michel, myself, Ronda (finally out of the galley and into the water!), Tove, who served as videographer, and Jim Maragos.
