Rising Tide #73 – Mariner Nick Landon’s Life at Sea

This week on Rising Tide we talk with Nick Landon, a young mariner who decided to turn his love for the ocean into a career. Nick tells us about his four years at the California Maritime Academy, his day-to-day activities as a third mate aboard an oil tanker, the ship’s time in Dry Dock in the Bahamas, and more. We discuss environmental changes taking place in the fleet, marine wildlife he’s spotted and what he tells high school students about the advantages of a life at sea.
