Other than providing services for regular and specialized tourist trips, we are good at two other things- providing complete support for research expeditions and TV/Film crew
From the very beginning one of our major part of work is providing services to various research projects, from small scale local research expeditions to international large scale long term research expeditions.
For a TV/Film crew we’re a complete package, from research, film permit(s) to shoot support. Necessities of a film crew was a consideration during the foundation of the organization and building our boats.
