English translation:baroudeurs (a team of traveling scientists)
Explanation:
"baroudeur" is French anyway. Generally refers to a person who travels about from place to place without any specific travel plan. "Un baroudeur de la mer" is the type of person who "hitches" lifts from one boat to another to ravel around, do a bit of island-hopping. The world is their oyster!
