Explore. Discover. Make a Difference.
Ocean Explorers Expeditions are the perfect experience for groups who wish to increase their environmental engagement and knowledge base. Expeditions use citizen science to take scientific exploration from abstract to tangible. Expedition trips provide an overview of ocean-focused citizen science programs while engaging in hands-on field activities. These trips are primarily geared towards higher education groups but can be made to fit various audiences.
Ocean Explorers Expeditions allow groups to have meaningful connections and real-world learning at international and domestic destinations. Whether your group wants to travel to a new destination or revisit a past location, we'll work with you to create a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience. Current structured program locations include The Florida Keys, Mexico, The Cayman Islands, and Bonaire. If you'd like to develop an Expedition in a new location, we'd be happy to discuss various possibilities.
Program length and class content are customized around each group's interests, so every experience is unique and personalized. The programs are led by REEF staff who have the experience and knowledge base to provide an extensive and all-encompassing experience that exposes participants to various marine science-based initiatives, helping define what participants can do as individuals to make a difference in the health of our oceans.
Schools, colleges, and universities have begun to incorporate Expeditions into their learning experiences. If you're interested in taking part in REEF Ocean Explorers Expeditions, contact explorers@REEF.org or call 305-852-0030 to start your adventure!
