Environment

Many people look at the ocean as a blue impenetrable mass, far beyond our comprehension. Appreciation of the natural environment is the foundation of our business. Scuba divers literally immerse themselves in nature’s largest playground and witness first-hand the beauty and sensitive nature of the ocean.

Given our position we feel it is our duty to promote environmental awareness and responsible behavior, embrace sustainable business practices, and actively pursue community and global stewardship efforts.
