The ReefQuest Philosophy has always been, "The
most enjoyable and powerful way to learn is through doing." All
our programs feature a strong hands-on component, providing opportunities
for each of our participants to try first-hand what many have
dreamed yet few ever have opportunity to do.
Because so much of
our work takes place in the field, out on the ocean, it is necessary
to maintain a sense of humor about unforeseen challenges and
to adapt our plan as we go. Both Anne and I take very seriously
the 'tour guide' part of our jobs and we are available to answer
your questions and concerns 24-hours a day. We have been incredibly
fortunate that our clients have shared our sense of fun and
excitement in learning new things and are always willing to work
with us toward making our Expeditions as successful as possible
-- no matter what the ocean serves up.
As is so often the case,
apparent problems turn out to be opportunities in disguise, making
each one of our Expeditions as unique as the individuals who join
us on our adventures. ReefQuest's heuristic approach requires
an awful lot of work on our part, but we firmly believe that the
educational and experiential results are well worth it.
