The previous review I accidentally submitted before I was done. And I want to write the FULL REVIEW:

Diving at Isla del Caño was such a life changing, passion accelerating experience for me. I had done a conservation diving internship in Thailand before this experience, and it felt GREAT to apply those skills and field methods to another part of the world. I had a passion for the ocean before this experience, however this expedition solidified that I need to dedicate my life and career to the ocean and science.

Carlos is truly an inspiration. His fiery passion for the ocean is contagious. He worked really hard to put the experience together with the boat, the dive equipment, and the education. This expedition was a lot of hard work. We woke up really early went on two dives a day. We came back exhausted. But I really can't stress how rewarding the experience was. The fact we were literally advising and providing resources for the rangers protecting the island made me feel like I was making a difference in the world.

This will not be the last Innoexpedition I go on. And I will keep supporting Innoceana and promoting all the work it is doing.
