Chief Scientists, Staff Scientist and USIO personal continued crossing over with off-going USIO staff. Several VIP tours were conducted in cooperation with the Auckland Museum and the New Zealand IODP office. Exp. 330 scientists boarded the ship at 11:15 and started to explore their new home. Co-chief scientists gave a science talk at a VIP lunch function at Auckland Museum in the afternoon. Most members of the Exp. 330 science party also attended this event (organized by the New Zealand IODP office) and were given tours of the museum afterwards.  Loading activities (off and on loading) continue.
