February 29, 2020 @ 6PM ORCA’s Explorer’s Experience
The Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA) is a non-profit organization focused on exploring new ways to protect the ocean, starting right here with our very own precious ocean estuary, the Indian River Lagoon. On February 29, ORCA will be presenting a special fundraising event at Triton Submarines in Sebastian, An Explorer's Experience.
Guests will see new state-of-the-art submersibles, never-before-seen footage of weird and wonderful creatures from the deep, the first video ever recorded of a giant squid in US waters and talk with the explorers who experienced these marvels first hand, while drinking glow-in-the-dark cocktails and enjoying locally sourced cuisine.
A silent auction at the event will include a dive in a Triton submersible with Allen Exploration. Guests will have the opportunity to bid for a chance to explore the deep ocean during an underwater excursion on a submersible ride in the Bahamas. This package for four people includes one overnight stay in two VIP cabins and food and drinks on board the M/Y Axis, Allen Exploration’s 183 foot yacht, and a day (minimum of two dives) of sub diving in the Bahamas in a Triton 3K3 Submersible.
Proceeds benefit ORCA, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to the protection and restoration of aquatic ecosystems and the species they sustain through the development of innovative technologies and science based conservation action.
