In addition to conducting Reef Check surveys at each reef, they will stop and will document the work and the ecosystems they find using Google Ocean’s latest specialized underwater camera to take panorama or “underwater street view" photos. They will upload these to Google Maps to help raise awareness of the conservation issues in this unexplored ecosystem.

No lines?? Except when you go between 8 and 10 pm, when there are lines to the back of the store and only one cashier on duty. Never go between 8 and 10 pm--you'll regret, I guarantee.
