How about snorkeling and/or diving, in clear tropical waters, to look for cephalopods? How about useing a 200 foot tall ship as a base and sailing to a new place every day? http://www.acrossthesea.net/octosurvey.html "The Octopus & Squid Survey in the Grenadines will be directed by Dr. James Wood. This survey is an unprecedented effort as there has never been a survey for these animals in this region. Not only are these animals incredibly interesting and offer extreme potential in terms of general education, but there is a need to understand the movement and eating habits of octopus and squid as part of a complete and comprehensive marine management program in the country."
