Description

Overview
Head on out in the clear blue waters of the South Pacific Ocean, where you will learn or improve your diving in one of the world’s most beautiful tropical regions, while discovering a unique underwater environment. Join an international team of participants on a marine biology expedition which focuses on the collection of important data on marine species from underwater research dives. This research becomes the foundation for local communities and organisers to make better decisions to improve sustainability in the area.

The project is geared towards providing long term benefits to locals through strategies helping to guarantee food security, not only for current generations, but future ones too.
