WHOI Expeditions

Associates have the unique opportunity to travel to exotic destinations and explore the world’s natural wonders with a WHOI scientist as their guide. Expeditions feature an educational experience grounded in the marine environment.

The Amazon

Scientists of the Global Rivers Observatory held the first annual river expedition this year to the largest river on Earth–the Amazon River in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. This unique expedition allowed guests to experience first-hand this amazing ecosystem. Guests learned how scientists study the ecology and chemistry of rivers and participated in the types of discussions that often lead to new scientific projects, a stage in scientific research rarely witnessed by non-scientists.

A Recent Adventure

Friends of WHOI recently joined Director Susan K. Avery and Senior Scientist Susan Humphris on an expedition to South Georgia Island. Sponsored by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and New York Yacht Club, this one-in-a-lifetime adventure took guests to one of the world's stunningly beautiful wildlife sanctuaries, with its snow covered peaks, blue glacier ice and emerald green bays, and other breathtaking sights.
