The goal of our first-ever expedition was to circumnavigate the island of Bermuda on Stand Up Paddle board while collecting water samples with a custom designed trawl net and hopefully drawing some media attention. Thanks to our successful kickstarter campaign, we were able to achieve both. The expedition took 11 long days of paddling which were documented in four educational episodes that aired daily in Bermuda. In the end, we proved that our expedition-awareness model is an effective one worth pursuing and was even recognized by the Cousteau Society.
