Head to Cocos on the Undersea Hunter boat Argo from November 10-22, 2013 and join biologists in a multi-year study focusing on the locations and migrations of sharks and sea turtles. You will be able to dive all the great spots around Cocos and help with this important work. They will teach you how to catch sea turtles if you are interested (although you do not have to do this if you don't want to). Filling the boat with "citizen scientists" allows the biologists to be able to do their research, plus it provides the average diver with a great insight into how research is done. In addition, your costs associated with the trip can be tax-deductible. Imagine that, writing off an entire dive trip!

Disclaimer: I am in no way involved with the organizations running this trip other than as a paid client. I've done the trip twice before (and hope to do it again next year) and I fully support the work STRP and PRETOMA are doing, so I just want them to succeed. If you have any questions about the trip or the diving I'd be glad to answer them as best I can.
