Ultimate Host NASA Research Project

Ultimate Whale Watch and Snorkel was stoked to support this month’s project that including conducting research on Maui’s reef using NASA’s state-of-the-art satellite sensors. Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Tom Bell and his team of NASA scientist spent week on our Ultimate Raft shooting photos and documenting Maui’s reef. NASA’s goal was to use both underwater images and satellite sensors to test new ways of measuring and documenting various form of reef degradation, with the hopes it can be applied on a global scale to learn more about coral reef recovery. Want to help support this research and other projects? It’s easy just join us for a snorkel trip or whale watch, portion of our proceeds from every ticket support research projects!
