About Us

My photo
We work as ecotourism guides (as well as biologist and boat captain) often on the BC Coast, but also as far ranging as the Arctic and Antarctic. We have an insatiable curiousity for the planet; all its hidden gems and what makes them tick. That and our love of sailing is what inspired us to sail around the Pacific in Narama, our tough and pretty little sailboat.

Secchi Disk Project


Richard Kirby, a plankton scientist at Plymouth University, UK, wrote to us recently to about the new Secchi Disk project.  It is a really simple way of measuring plankton abundance with a circular home made disc and graduated line or measuring tape.  It is all about citizen science and we'd encourage every-one to take a look at the web site and help out. After all plankton provide us with about half the oxygen we breath.
