We are very proud to announce a new partnership with Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation, in support of its campaign to make Britain the first country in the world to ban shark products.
73 million sharks are killed every year, mostly for their fins. This equates to two every second. That's at least twelve sharks since you started reading this!
We are pledging to raise at least £10,000 over the next 12 months, with the help of our amazing customers. The money raised will go towards funding awareness campaigns, highlighting the serious conservation issues faced by sharks globally. We are simply asking our customers to make a small (or big!) donation towards Bite-Back when you make your next booking with us.
Get involved and be part of the change.

Don't worry, your existing 5% BSAC Discount can still be claimed too!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. Book your next exciting diving adventure with blue o two and head off on your travels…
2. When you return home, you'll receive an email from blue o two with some simple instructions, and a form to give to your club treasurer to claim cashback for your club
3. Once the forms are received by blue o two, we will issue a cashback payment directly to your club and you can start looking forward to your next holiday…
The process couldn't be more straightforward but the rewards are potentially huge…
BENEFITS TO YOUR CLUB...
A full charter trip on board M/Y blue Horizon in the Red Sea can cater for up to 26 divers. This trip would provide you and your club with the following benefits...
1. A superb liveaboard and diving experience!
2. A direct contribution of £650 paid by blue o two to your club!
3. 5% BSAC Discount
Divers must be a current BSAC member and affiliated to a BSAC Club at the time of booking and travel. Divers must notify their travel consultant at the time of booking to confirm if they are eligible for the scheme. Kickback contribution may be claimed on special offers unless otherwise stated. If the booking is cancelled or there is a name change carried out, we will not provide the kickback contribution. The customer must book, depart and return from their holiday in order for the kickback contribution to be issued. The treasurer of the affiliated BSAC Club will need to invoice blue o two for the kickback contribution and we will then check the claim corresponds to bookings made and check for current BSAC memberships. If so, we will then make payments to the club on a quarterly basis either via a cheque or bank transfer.
blue o two is an official partner of the Project AWARE Foundation.
Project AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness, Responsibility and Education) works to preserve precious aquatic habitats and protect them for future generations. It is the dive industries leading non-profit organisation committed to conserving underwater environments through education, advocacy and action.
As divers we enjoy the beauty and diversity of the underwater world, but we also see first hand the consequences that come from neglecting and damaging the aquatic environment and its ecosystems.
Supporting Project AWARE is just one way that we can help to give something back to the marine environment that we enjoy and love so that future generations also get this privilege.
Red Sea Sharks
The Red Sea Sharks trust was founded by blue o two dive guide and biologist Dr. Elke Bojanowski Ph.D.
The Red Sea Sharks trust provides information and education on sharks and their worldwide situation. By continuing its research on Red Sea sharks, using such diverse methods as a volunteer monitoring program, photo-identification, electronic tracking, and dedicated surveys, the trust hopes to gain a more comprehensive picture of shark movements throughout the Red Sea region.
To find out more about Red Sea Sharks and the work of the trust, upload your own shark images or even adopt a shark, please follow the link to their website HERE.
blue o two have to date raised £7,340 for Red Sea Sharks!
