We’ve developed cutting-edge marine conservation expeditions to enable people to come out to our base in Mozambique and experience what we do. Why? We feel if you can come out here and see our work with your own eyes, you’ll be even more passionate about conservation and this helps transfer the message of environmentalism globally. 

To date, we’ve welcomed expedition participants from over 23 countries to participate in all our work and help our cause. The money from the expeditions goes directly back into the organisation to fund the critical conservation work we do and fund our research and educational outreach projects. All our expeditions are all inclusive – the prices below include food, accommodations, dives, internal travel and more.

Want to join us in Mozambique? Great! Check out our expeditions below and enquire to get more information on each trip. This page will be updated regularly with more information on new trips. Want to run a trip with us? Get in contact with us here.

Rest assured you’re in safe hands. We’ve won awards for our expeditions, risk assess everything and have comprehensive health and safety assessments that you can check out here.
