Galapagos Shark Research Insights & Photography Dive Liveaboard
Aug 2022 and June / July 2023, 2024 & 2025
We operate journeys to some of the most pristine parts of our Blue Planet; but these Ocean Giant experiences take you a step closer.
We began these experiences in 2006, with Whale Shark Research and Conservation holidays to the Seychelles. These were led by one of the world's leading Whale Shark Scientists and Aqua-Firma Marine Scientist, Charlotte Caffrey.
Our Whale Shark Research & Photography trips continue today, following more assured seasonal aggregations of sharks in the Galapagos, Mexico, Tanzania and Madagascar. Guests benefit from being in the right places at the right time, enlightened by hosts which include whale shark scientists and highly experienced underwater marine megafauna filmers and photographers. In addition to ensuring responsibly managed encounters, your participation also helps to provide funding for cutting edge whale shark research and conservation.
From whale sharks, our Ocean Giant experiences extended to Manta Ray Research and Photography in Mozambique, Mexico and Komodo; as well as Humpback Whales in the Caribbean and Antarctica; Blue Whales in Sri Lanka; Polar Bears, Walruses & feeding whales in the Arctic; and Orcas in Norway. Photographic opportunities can be unparalleled, with expert advice on hand to help you prepare, understand your subjects and get the best from the equipment you have.
The 'bycatch' of these experiences can be just as wonderful as our primary targets. These have included intimate encounters with Sperm Whales, Golden Cownose Rays and Dolphins so plentiful there have been too many to count. Firmly beneath the waves, we find coral reefs and colourful fish life in Komodo and Tanzania that will simply take your breath away. Terrestrial delights include Komodo Dragons, Lemurs and the most brightly coloured Chameleons on Earth.
