environmental education. In this expedition you will navigate

by boat with our marine biologists through the beautiful Pacific Ocean

to just offshore of Drake Bay, there you will monitor the whales and

dolphins species encountered while observing the stunning views

and be able to submerge in the crystal clear turquoise waters

of the Pacific coast.



Environmental education in local schools and to the local

community are also part of the experience. You'll have the chance
