Underwater photography. Ocean conservation. One adventure at a time.

Welcome to ACP, where we combine our passion for underwater photography and dive travel to raise awareness about marine conservation. We have been leading dive expeditions to some of the most beautiful ocean environments around the world for over fifteen years.

In addition to our dive expeditions, we also offer a variety of services, including underwater photography workshops, custom dive trips, and educational presentations. Our goal is to inspire people to explore the ocean, learn about its inhabitants, and take action to protect the planet. Join us on our next adventure and discover the magic of the ocean!

Amanda Cotton has spent the last 18 years working as a Wildlife Photographer specializing in the underwater world. Her work has been published in major publications and news sources worldwide including National Geographic, BBC, Discovery, Smithsonian Magazine, Times Publishing, Scuba Diving Magazine, Sport Diver Magazine, Natural History Magazine, and Science Daily; as well as many international dive industry advertising and marketing campaigns.

Working with organizations such as Scholastic Books, The Conservation Fund, Consortium For Ocean Leadership, Women Diver's Hall of Fame, Marine Life Protection Act, and Rourke Publishing has allowed her imagery and writing to have a positive impact on the oceans through education and outreach programs designed to improve awareness toward the plight the oceans now face.

Amanda is honored to be a Member National of The Explorers Club and was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame in 2015.
