A Summer tradition continues….

August, 2017

Click here to see what you are in for!

Back by popular demand, you are invited to come join Get Inspired! and Ocean Gear for an amazing program planned this year with several surprises. This year we have decided to focus on Citizen Science.

This is where the average non-scientific member of the world community can learn and contribute to further our understanding of the local environment and our individual impact on it. This year we set sail for a 5 day camp and spend 4 of those days at sea doing some of the most amazing diving anywhere in the world. In addition to living on the boat for our camp, we will travel around Santa Catalina and Santa Barbara Islands. In Catalina, we will dive the great Pacific Kelp Forests and tour USC’s Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies as well as spend some time conducting a lab in the Recompression Chamber. Our time at Santa Barbara Island will allow us to interact with their Pinniped population (Seals and Sea Lions). This is an experience most people will only dream about.
