A Radioactive Glass Bottom Boat Tour of John Pennekamp Coral Reef

This video is part of our 4000 mile Radioactive Roadtrip field investigation. A two hour timed total count was taken lasting the entirety of a Glass Bottom boat tour off of Key Largo at John Pennekamp state park.

The result was a two hour total of 2322 counts, which averages to 0.0055 mR/hr (standardized to Cs137); this is the lowest average background reading we have encountered.

  1. I hope the corals and marine life will be saved. It is really nice to see beautiful and active fishes swim around coral reefs. We should preserve and protect the corals because it is really beautiful. I have seen the beauty of the water when I went to dolphins argyll tour and it is breathtaking. I hope the seas, lakes and other waters will be the same.
