Having worked in law for 25 years and raised several children I took it upon myself as I have gotten older to spend more time doing the things I enjoy. Traveling to places famed for their marine environments and living off boats and on tropical islands has helped me to decide on a new career path in marine conservation, something that is both valuable to myself and the rest of the world and something I feel particularly passionate about.
I have been careful in my recommendations to take into account the state of the reef you would be visiting and to advise you of any damage your visit could cause. Please refer to these excellent resources for more practical details about visiting coral reefs.
