Cruising south Florida and Bahamas

I have a 36' sailing catamaran at a home marina in Hollywood FL. I am planning a number of trips in the south Florida area and the Bahamas to observe and record data on dolphins and would like to find like-minded people, interested in dolphins to crew for me and help with data collection.
This is not a "swim-with" effort. I hope to collect photos and sound recordings of dolphins that we encounter from the boat.
The trips will be for one to two weeks at a time and will generally originate in the Ft Lauderdale area.
If you have interest in dolphins and sailing with time to spare, you could be a candidate for time at sea. Positive attitude, interest in science, sailing experience all favorable attributes.
Let me know if you're interested.

My current interests are personal and focused on refining my recording and camera equipment.

It might be good to also note what expenses if any the crew should be able to pay for, and what the Captain, presumably yourself, would pay for, as well as the make and possibly a few photos of the boat.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

Oh, "Observe and record 'data' on dolphins" means recording pictures onto data cards. Thank you for clarifying.

Re: Cruising south Florida and Bahamas

When are the dates you are planning your trip. I live in West Palm Beach and have a flexible schedule. Some sailing experience but a quick learner. Sounds like a cool adventure!
