How does it work?

What do we do?

We run a variety of projects. A project is an organized plan driven by one or more objectives and conducted over one or several expeditions. Under this scope, a huge variety of themes are possible, from deep exploration on a seamount, to field trips looking for a particular marine species.

Who can join?

The club is open to everybody. Different expeditions might requiere different diver, or non-diver profiles. In most cases, these trips are great fun and everybody can contribute. There are activities for all experience levels, and non divers can always help as surface support crew.

How much does it cost?

All the club members participating in the expedition trip contribute sharing the expenses. The cost will change depending on how far we sail, or what kind of equipment is required. Usual expenses are fuel, captain salary, marine park fees or air fills. A medium size team of explorers can easily cover these expenses and enjoy a great day out.

Club Benefits

Besides of participating and contributing in altruistic projects, the members of the Club have other perks, like discounts on regular tours and trips, equipment rentals or priority on special events and activities…and of course being part of on of the most adventurous and fun team there is!

Who leads the expeditions?

The expeditions are always led by an experienced member or qualified professional. There will always be somebody who can plan de activity safely and has all the required qualifications and experience to conduct it.
