Confessions of a Marine Biologist: Bros vs. Boat


Marine biologist bros suffer life-threatening boat trouble on their expedition to Mo‘orea to study the coral-killing “Spider-Snail”.

This is the third of three epic expeditions in the Society Islands of French Polynesia in the South Pacific, in which marine biologists from the U.S. and New Zealand study how vermetid snail populations may be linked to human development.

In this episode, the bros are feeling very comfortable diving all around their home island of Mo’orea to study “Spider-Snail”. But then, all of the sudden, a mechanical error leaves the bros with some tough decisions as they run out of daylight. Will they make it back to dry land in one piece?
