Throughout this three-day adventure, "desert dwelling" BHS students are provided the opportunity to truly experience this oceanic habitat as they ar e provided the use of all necessary equipment to go snorkeling in the Pacific Ocean. One dive even takes place after dark, allowing the rare chance to vie bioluminescent phytoplankton under the night sky. No prior experience necessary.
