At Carolina Beach, we met with Richard C., who owns 'Carolina Ocean Studies'. He and his team of marine biologists taught us about the Atlantic.

This was a wonderful adventure. As we went to Wolfe's Reef to fish; the boat collected more specimens in its nets and we listened to the instructors inside this large boat.

Things went well for a while, then we all wondered if we would get sea
sick before we got to the reef to fish.

We had directions to look at the horizon if we started to feel queezy. It worked!




No one really got sick on the three mile journey to Wolfe's Reef. We pulled nets behind the boat while we were listening.

Fishing turned out to be fun. It wasn't as cold as we thought it would be.

The first catches are the most fun; this outdoor classroom is very fast paced now.

Jessican and Victoria don't seem to mind the wind now that the sun is shining. They were trying everything!

Craig and Carlos had fun doing everything on this trip from crabbing to fishing to taking pictures.

Water as far as you can see. It's amazing that so much activity is going on under this water.

When we finish our fishing expedition, the marine biologists take all the catch and teach us about each specimen.

The Blue Crab: NC has a $24 million industry with this little animal Rachel is holding.

We can understand why after our evening adventure on Oak Island.

We caught many crabs the night before from the Pier at Fort Caswell just using chicken pieces and string.
