About Us

Charlotte Caffrey, co-Founder, sailing across
Indian Ocean

Chloë Burnett - Wilderness & Wildlife Travel Consultant, seen here sailing in Antarctica. Chloë has also spent time sailing in South Georgia and travelled extensively in South America.

Aqua-Firma is a company driven by a long developed passion for exploring and conserving the best of our planet's wilderness and wildlife - in particular where land and water meet.

From the Equator to the Poles we explore the areas surrounding the great oceans, rivers, lakes and icecaps - home to some of the most dramatic encounters with wildlife and the natural world.

Qualified to advise and inspire

Our in-depth knowledge of these environments is built on our foundation as marine and environmental scientists, conservation experts, professional wilderness guides, diving instructors and yachtmasters. We have ourselves snorkelled and dived all five of the world's oceans, kayaked through tropical rainforests and Arctic ice, photographed the great migrations of Africa and dived with penguins beyond the Antarctic Circle -  just some of the experiences which have made us true experts in our field!  

Many experiences are also created with the input of leading wildlife and marine life researchers, professional photographers and guide book writers: people who have a passion to communicate the environments they know best through years of on-location, first hand experience.  The result is the opportunity to experience wilderness locations in ways which are invigorating, enlightening and responsible. 

Tailored to suit you

Our experiences can be tailored to suit your degree of comfort and adventure, timings and budget whether you travel alone, in the company of friends or wish to join a group. You will be able to sit with penguins in Antarctica or enjoy dolphins riding tropical waters from the bow of a yacht; watch jaguars in Brazil's Pantanal or view Polar bears on Arctic sea ice !

Wildlife and Conservation

Aqua-Firma was conceived in 1986 and is built on many years of working as marine scientists and professionals in the world of rainforest conservation. We have a long history of providing consultancy, financial support and on-location advice on conservation and tourism projects in the Amazon, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

We continue to invest in conservation alongside our global partners.   Some experiences are specifically designed to try to share the natural world with key species and experts who know their behaviour intimately. Our Whale Shark and Humpback Whale experiences are amongst our marine favourites and our research experiences to Tanzania and Mexico are accompanied by leading international and local researchers whose work you help to fund by joining us.

Bridging land and marine, we can take you to the Giant Leatherback and Green Turtle conservation projects we support and rainforest reserves which we help to expand through our Carbon Offset donations. Very much on land (the firma half of our name) we take you in search of Mountain Gorillas, Polar Bears, Emperor Penguins, Orangutans, Chimpanzees, Big Cats and the Great Migration of the Serengeti.

Personal service, advice and support

Whenever you pick up the phone to Aqua-Firma, you can be sure you will speak to a person with passion and in-depth knowledge about the locations we travel to. Before, after and 24 hours a day whilst you are travelling, you can contact us for help and information. It's never a trouble to ask.

We hope to hear from you and provide you with the journey of a lifetime like so many of our clients have experienced before you.
