Black People of Caribbean Descent Who Made History
Every year, as one ponders black history month, it becomes more difficult to reconcile the fact that the history of any group should be relegated to one month of the year. America is a melting pot; thus, American history is black history and black history is world history. Given that internal dialogue, this post was almost not written. Instead, our focus this year is on the the history/impact of black people of Caribbean descent on the American fabric. Hope you enjoy reading this list as much as we enjoyed putting it together. I am sure we have missed many individuals. Feel free to add their names below this post as you read and enjoy our American history.

In order to accommodate the changing times, our schedule has been abbreviated. Thus, we thought it prudent to send a schedule reminder. Both vessels operate weekdays but on the weekends only one vessel runs. This can change at any time so follow us on social media for day to day changes. Thanks for your patronage.
Sea turtles are majestic creatures that sometimes live for centuries. Despite their longevity, the Caribbean sea turtle population has suffered greatly. Their size has decreased 99% and are in danger of being completely eradicated from the area.
The next generation should not have to learn what these creatures looked like just from pictures. We all want to leave a world for them where they may be able to experience going to the beach at night during nesting season, and observing the baby turtles scramble to the sea after being hatched.
Here is how you can help according to nps.gov:
