What to Expect

Expedition participants will dive among schooling hammerheads, several species of sea turtles, and schools of thousands of fish, as they support conservation efforts directly at the site.

Participate in three fantastic dives each day, which is enhanced through work with Turtle Island Restoration Network biologists to study sea turtles, and census and track sharks. Participants will be able to assist with various levels of research depending on experience.

Enjoy engaging conservation lectures and socializing with fellow ocean lovers every evening. For more information, please email info@seaturtles.org
