connectocean expeditions
Our expeditions are meant to be a call to action for ordinary citizen who believe that every one of us can contribute to the conservation of our beautiful planet’s natural resources. Through the ConnectOcean Citizen Science & Outreach Expeditions, we aim to inspire and create a life transforming experience to help you discover, connect and protect our planet.
You will explore some of nature’s most diverse and scenic locations while collaborating with passionate and committed local researchers, naturalists, activists and marine scientists on a broad range of citizen science initiatives. You will also be immersed in a local community and grass root conservation projects. We work in collaboration with local communities to cultivate environmental awareness and interest within the youth of these communities in preserving the marine environment and it’s resources.

Join us for an Expedition that will transform you. Join us to discover, connect and to protect…and to become a positive advocate for change!
I love the fact that ConnectOcean offers more than just worldclass scuba diving. Getting to know and helping local communities, learning about marine conservation, and being part of a worldwide Citizen Scientist community is what makes their expeditions clearly stand out from others.
