Beginning Earth Day 20??, invoking the American spirit of exploration and discovery, H2O Treks will commence an epic underwater quest to dive all 50 states.  Follow the team on their journey, increasing awareness of and appreciation for our most valuable resource, water.

Mission

An unprecedented underwater adventure designed to raise awareness about opportunities to explore what is around. While highlighting water… our planet’s most precious resource.

About Us

We are a group of friends that fell in love with diving from our very first giant stride.  While we always have diving on the brain,  ultimately we are impassioned to promote, share, and teach about what has become a life changing activity.  To learn more, go to the team section.

Why

Today, our water is increasingly threatened: Climate change, overuse, and pollution are jeopardizing access to and availability of water.  Compounding the age-old battle of man against nature, water scarcity is increasingly setting man against man.   “The wars of the next century will be about water,” said Ismail Serageldin, former World Bank Vice President

Goals

  • Draw attention to environmental issues affecting our water supply
  • Promote environmental stewardship, exploration and documentation of our water resources
  • Share the beauty & accessibility of some of the most unique dive, dining, and lodging sites
  • Partner with environmentally focused individuals, groups, businesses and non-profit organizations
  • Earth Day (4/22) 20??: H2O Treks USA - 50 dives in 50 states
  • Earth Day (4/22) 20??: H2O Treks EU
  • Earth Day (4/22) 20??: H2O Treks World

The Journey

 

Our Mission: The Means to Bring Awareness Water covers nearly 70% of the planet and we rely on it for consumption, industry and sanitation. Many of these wonderful locations are rapidly deteriorating. Join us as we explore with support of public participation, citizen scientists, universities, and environmentally conscience businesses as they are turning the tide. We are bringing breath taking views above and below the surface while highlighting awareness from people's own home states, visiting locations such as oceans, rivers, and lakes.
