Divers Down: Head South with Aquarium Divers

The New England Aquarium would like to invite you to join our upcoming Bahamas Collecting Expedition from April 27 to May 6, 2012! Destination: Bimini, Bahamas.

You'll bring back more than just the traditional slide show for friends and family. You’ll help collect colorful reef fishes and invertebrates while working alongside Aquarium professionals, increasing your fish identification skills and learning about our conservation efforts in the Bahamas.

This eight-day adventure features dive sites throughout the islands of Bimini, Bahamas. The final day of the trip is spent packing fish in Miami for shipment to Boston. All fish are collected under strict permits through the Bahamian government, and endangered or threatened fish are never collected.

Certified divers (and snorkelers) of all experience levels are welcome on this unique dive vacation. Must be 18 years old. The trip includes all accommodations (food, drink and lodging), up to five dives per day (weights and tanks provided), an Aquarium membership, and a dive in the Aquarium’s 200,000 gallon Caribbean reef exhibit. The cost is approximately $3,400.00.
