POLARIS B Survey Mission Scrubbed

The Atlantica Expeditions mission to survey a potential underwater site for the placement of the Leviathan Habitat for the world record 80 day mission was scrubbed on Saturday to weather concerns. This second mission was to survey a potential site called POLARIS B. The water was choppy and the air temperature uncomfortably cool as the season’s last cold front blew through the area on Friday. The mission has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 25th.

The first survey mission to the POLARIS A was conducted successfully last week. The Atlantica Expeditions will not post results until all sites have been evaluated both with soundings and dive teams have visited the potential habitat locations.
