"Wildlife and environmental conservation are hugely important in my life. The more time I spend in the ocean, the more I want to commit my time and work to helping protect it. " - Karim Iliya
There are strict regulations in Tonga to insure that the whales are not disturbed, and that swimming is on the whales terms in short incremental time periods. When swimming with the whales, we work with local Tongan whale guides and boat captains who have grown up around whales their whole lives. Our goal is to have healthy, mutual interactions with whales, that enhance our understanding and appreciation of these animals so that they can thrive on this planet throughout the future. Earth is our home. We share it with incredible species connected through an intricate and delicate ecosystem. We want to leave this planet better than when we arrived.
We also directly support organizations and Marine conservation efforts financially:
We donate 1% of sales to ocean conservation: We partner up with “Lucid” providing financial support for their project raising awareness about plastics in the ocean.
We also offer free drone workshops to conservation organizations around the world looking to use drones for environmental and conservation efforts. If you know any marine conservation organizations doing great work that could use our support, please send us an email.
