Ecotourism Transforms Attitudes to Marine Conservation:
Thank you very much for considering to join us on an amazing expedition. We look forward to sharing an adventure of a lifetime. There is no experience that can compare with the thrill of being eye to eye with marine wildlife in its natural environment, and we can think of nowhere on land or in the sea where creatures of this size voluntarily interact with participants at such close proximity. It is no exaggeration to say that is a singularly exceptional experience, an experience that very few inhabitants of the planet ever have. It is our pleasure to guide you through this amazing experience, and I will do everything I can to ensure that your journey is everything that you imagine and more.
Spend a once in a lifetime week swimming with large pods of wild dolphins in the azure, clear, and warm waters of the Bahamas. Swim right beside dolphins in the wild. Play in the waters home to dolphins that spin and leap into the air
Swimming alongside the largest fish in the sea is one of the ultimate bucket-list experiences. Lucky, then, that there are a handful of destinations around the world where in-season sightings of whale sharks are almost guaranteed. Spend 4 days snorkeling off shore of Isla Mujeres. We charter a private boat and join the hundreds of Whale Sharks and Giant Mantas as they drift and feed on plankton.

Thank you Marine Education Foundation and Stephanie Whiston for providing an experience that will remain with me for life. Swimming with, and sharing the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico with the truest of gentle giants, the Whale Sharks, was not only an eye-opening experience, but a spiritual one as well. I always suspected animals have souls, and now have no doubt this to be true; looking these majestic beings in the eye can leave no other conclusion. Thank you again Stephanie and the Foundation for such an experience; please continue with the incredible work you are doing in raising awareness of how important the ocean, marine life, and all life is on this planet and how we all depend on one another. - K Deneau
