Fleet Miami has partnered with the International SeaKeepers Society to take charter guests on a research expeditions. The pilot charter was scheduled to begin Aug. 15 aboard Fleet Miami’s 154-foot M/Y Usher. For the discounted weekly rate of $175,000 (plus APA), guests would be joined by marine research scientists and participate in ocean research in the Bahamas. The researchers would stay aboard another boat in Fleet Miami fleet, M/Y Shredder, a 54-foot East Bay.

The first SeaKeepers Learning Expedition was expected to be an immersive shark educational and research experience. Over four days, participants would enjoy interactive presentations to learn about sharks and their plight, how to identify species of sharks common to Bahamian waters, and learn about research projects going on at the Save Our Seas Shark Research Center and Guy Harvey Research Institute.

Participants would also enjoy several reef snorkeling trips where they would be tasked with photographing and recording the species, sex and size estimates of sharks they encounter.

“We are proud to announce our support of and partnership with such an influential and active organization as The International SeaKeepers Society,” said Capt. Glen Allen, Fleet Miami’s fleet captain. “Now, each Fleet Miami charter that incorporates a SeaKeepers Learning Expedition will not only be memorable and educational for each charter guest, but will lend a positive impact on overall ocean conservancy efforts.”
