CETACEAN CONNECTION

For 2019, we're launching a range of unique projects focused on better understanding and protecting cetacean species-- whales and dolphins-- and other large ocean wildlife.

Want to swim with humpback whales in Tonga and French Polynesia? How about with orcas in Arctic Norway? Or dolphins, whalesharks, and manta rays in Mozambique? Join us and our expert team of divers and photographers for a life-changing experience under the sea.

WATCH

 

This short film follows freediver and wildlife photographer Karim Iliya on a journey to Islands of Vava'u, Tonga in the South Pacific. Each year, hundreds of southern humpback whales migrate from the cold, nutrient rich waters off Antarctica to the safe, warm shallows of Polynesia to give birth, raise their young, and mate. Karim takes us underwater into his world to document, promote and protect these incredibly sentient animals.

REMOTE FOCUS 

Our mission to work with local fixers and guides, renowned experts, and captivating storytellers to bring sustainable benefit to local communities in some of the most geographically, politically, and ecologically remote parts of our planet. At the same time we work hard to offer unique, authentic, and in-depth experiences to visitors. The economic, environmental, and social benefits of responsible, sustainable tourism go both ways, and we're here to play a part in its growth.
