About the Aliquam 3 Dive Series

MEET THE FUTURE OCEAN LEADERS. All life started in the oceans. Throughout the Aliquam series, we discovered most importantly the life change that occurs when people discover the world below the surface of the oceans. For those at the start of their careers, the ocean formed a pathway toward greater understanding. For those in their youth, it gives them the first experience below the surface, transforming them and helping forge a greater pathway to Seek Adventure and Save the Ocean.
