USEA (UNDERSEA SOFT ENCOUNTER ALLIANCE) is a professional network for divers, diving centers and operators choosing a unique methodology of soft encounter, while responsibly interacting with marine mammals. Our tailor made technique and approach is dedicated to those who primarily respect and care about the safety, wellbeing and wild nature of cetaceans.
Our USEA tribe is made out of experts and world-known specialists who will share with you the knowledge of where you can meet marine mammals in the wild and teach you how to interact with these magnificent animals.
USEA expeditions are exclusive experiences dedicated to sustainable encounters with orcas, dolphins, seals and large whales.
Our approach is based on more than 20 years of experience of Orca Whisperer Pierre Robert de Latour and his 6,000 successful underwater encounters, mainly with orcas in their habitat. These
encounters are approved by scientists working in the field of marine
biology as well.
We are proud to announce the development of new projects under our Science and Research Department, which are dedicated to cetacean communication, social interactions and emotional display within the pod!
