Win a Diving Expedition Place



This is your chance to join a unique citizen science SCUBA diving coral reef conservation expedition.

In partnership with Reef Check and the Marine Conservation Society, Biosphere Expeditions is offering a free place on either its expedition to Musandam (Oman) or the Maldives. And there’s more: in addition to the expedition prize, there are other prizes from Reef Check and the Marine Conservation Society to be won.

You have to be a qualified diver (minimum PADI Open Water or equivalent). You also have to be prepared to muck in on a hands-on conservation project, not a luxury dive holiday. If this is you, then tell Biosphere Expeditions who you are, why they should take you on and what you think you can contribute to the diving expedition.

Main prize: participate in a Reef Check expedition of your choice

The winner can select freely from Biosphere Expeditions’ reef diving expeditions to Musandam (Oman) or the Maldives. The selection has to be made within 15 months of winning the prize.

Consolation prize: Reef Check pack

Consisting of T-shirt, hat and beach towel.

Consolation prize: Marine Conservation Society pack

Consisting of shirt from their clothing range and membership of the MCS for one year.

How to Apply

You have two options of putting in an application. Either send an essay (max. 100 words) or a video clip (max. 1 minute), which you can easily create yourself (for example using the movie setting of your digital camera) and upload to a video sharing site (for example YouTube). Whichever option you go for, Biosphere Expeditions would like to know from you who you are, why they should take you on and what you think you can contribute to the expedition.

Note that Biosphere Expeditions organises serious research & conservation expeditions, not luxury or sports or party holidays. With this in mind, the competitions are no “Pop Idol”-style castings events where you need to sing, dress up or otherwise make a fool out of yourself. Biosphere Expeditions would like to get to know you as much as possible within the above remit, so just be yourself!

The application deadline is 1 July 2019.


WIN one of the NEW Momentum M20 Dive Watches!!!



For this week’s competition, we’ve teamed up with our good friends at Nautilus Diving to give away one of Momentum’s new M20 Dive Watches as a prize!

Leading watch brand Momentum has introduced the new M20 series of watches. The new collection includes the M20 DSS Diver with a classic black dial, or striking Bahama yellow dial, and the M20 GMT Diver in a black & blue “Batman” version.

The M20 Dive watch features a solid 316L stainless steel case that is beautifully rounded and polished, taking its design cues from our original 1990’s Aquamatic model. The case is just under 42mm in diameter, but the smooth curves make it feel much smaller. Style, performance and unmatched comfort on the wrist.

The M20’s elegant yet durable design allows it to be worn in almost any situation. It has a 200M depth rating along with an off-set screw-down crown for added comfort.

The M20’s are also very legible, with its double-dome sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating there is virtually no glare. At night, the SuperLuminova luminous dial and hands come to life, a vital feature for serious divers where light may not reach certain depths.

To be in with a chance of winning this awesome prize, all you have to do is answer the following question:

In a recent post on (which you can find here), we reported that the Women Divers Hall of Fame have announced the selection of how many new members who will constitute the Class of 2021?

Is it:

  • A) five
  • B) six
  • C) seven

Answer, A, B or C to the question above:
