“A facility like the OceanEXP will be an incredible learning experience for our students. What a great place to expand young minds, motivate youth to explore new worlds and experience an environment they may never normally get to see. This centre would be an invaluable resource for teachers and parents alike and certainly an entertaining facility for people of all ages”
~ Tonia Collins, Educator and Diver
