We believe that the more you learn and know about the coral reef ecosystem, the more you will appreciate what you are doing and seeing. The greater your appreciation and understanding, the greater your enjoyment. We hope that with enhanced appreciation will come a desire to help us preserve and protect our reefs. That's why we've partnered with CoralRealm.com -- the premier, marine life education website.
CoralRealm is a cross between an online magazine (e-zine), a marine life identification guide, a research library, and dive travel planner. It's also a place where you can stop by and hang out with your fellow marine life and scuba diving enthusiasts.
