Click to hide meeting description

Discover the amazing underwater realm of the Arabian Sea as we explore the waters of the coast of Oman. Our journey brings us to the Daymaniyat and Hallaniyat Islands, but also to scenic sand dune covered landscapes and desert oasis as we travel the land of Sindbad.

Michel and Julie are both Fellows of the Explorers Club and Associate Members of the Boston Sea Rovers. They have twice been bestowed the honor of carrying the Explorers flag to Clipperton atoll and the findings of their 2 scientific missions to the atoll contributed to the creation of a marine protected area. In 2018 they received the Explorers Club Citation of Merit in recognition of their "exemplary accomplishments in Field Science and Conservation". In 2016, Michel was named a PADI Ambassador and in 2019, Julie was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
