Our mission

You point the way: we'll take you there.
Explore uninhabited and pristine waterworlds.

We carry the conscience and awareness of keeping our oceans protected. Redesigning Quino into a ship specifically built for scuba diving and scientific research has presented endless challenges, but visualizing it's mission and the results it will generate on conservation and protecting our ocean inspires us to pursue excellence.

The time we spent with marine biologist groups on our sister ship, Rocio del mar, has been specially precious, giving a sense of direction to the whole project, surrounded by open minds whose only interest was making the world a better place.

Quino is available for unique private charters, such as Citizen Science programs, exploration to Clipperton Island and the Benito Islands, videography workshops, rebreather diving and teaching kids how to save our oceans.

We can customize a trip itinerary around the special desires of the charter group. We can algo prepare special cuisine and dietary requests, special diving programs, biological and oceanographic research, photographic safaris, whaleshark and great whales encounters.

Contact us to design a custom charter agenda tailored to your specifications.

Our mission is to protect our oceans,
one charter at a time
