From Oceanic:

Since 1969, we have guided tens of thousands of travelers on life-changing journeys to explore the natural world. Again and again we have seen how conscientious nature tourism can transform the human relationship with the natural world by:

  • Making it pay to protect ecosystems—Growing the non-consumptive economic value of ocean resources through tourism means healthy oceans are valued by the communities and politicians who manage them.

  • Building an informed community of ocean advocates—Meaningful personal experiences with ocean wildlife and conservation issues turn our travelers into lifelong ocean advocates, armed with a deep understanding of the issues at hand and the tools to take action.

  • Supporting ocean research and conservation—By partnering with field-based research and conservation projects in the communities we visit, our travel programs provide financial support and manpower needed to study and protect ocean ecosystems both locally and regionally.
