Expedition in the Artic

Over the years I have been very fortunate to have many spectacular wildlife encounters. The knowledge we pass on to you is only from days and hours of hands-on experience. While there is still so much to learn about our oceans, I truly feel it is the most fascinating part of our planet.

Our Expeditions

Waterproof Expeditions creates life-enhancing travel experiences which exhilarate and fascinate. We believe that the best experiences have never been based purely on cost. With over 50 years combined experiential travelling in (underwater) cinematography, yacht and cruise expeditions and exploring and diving in remote and extreme places we speak from experience. We like to share this passion with you and feed the mind. By educating and inspiring. By breathless moments, and sometimes by extending your personal boundaries. With scheduled departures or tailor made private expeditions, designed around the element of water. Above and beyond the Ocean’s surface. Tell us about your ultimate itinerary and we make your dream trip come true !
