These experiences are perfect for the young and old eco-enthusiast with a need for more than the typical “Bob and Bake” cattle boat trip. Our citizen science trips include a 30 minute hands-on and “edutaining” reef and/or mangrove presentation, a full hour exploring coral reefs or mangrove forests, and two passionate IN WATER ecology guides to show you the wonder and joy of nature that you may have otherwise overlooked. Depending on the excursion participant’s range in swimming skill can be “mildly timid” to “confident in the water” (not gold medal athletes just comfortable in the water). Best of all, participants are given instruction and follow up on some really engaging science activities such as fish identification, coral assessment, and fish surveys. All data collected is uploaded (via social media) where science organizations such as Plant a Million Corals and Nature Conservancy who use it for helping our coral reefs and mangrove forests. Its fun, rewarding, and most of all a way to give back to our beautiful planet!
