Oceans of Opportunity: Educational Ocean Travel & Eco-Conscious Exploration

During the Driftawave inauguration departure in Croatia May 2024 we had a special visitor.


Mark Haver, the founder of BlueGreen Generation Consultancy. Striving for a more sustainable earth and ocean, whilst optimizing international collaboration. He performs his role working remotely, in combination with attending live- and public speaking events.

Mark provided us incredible knowledge regarding ocean protection, sustainability efforts, and sparked a conversation that kept on going for hours.

Since Driftawave workations highly praises efforts towards ocean preservation and protection; we do now proudly call Mark Haver one of our ambassadors.

'This article allows you to dive into the enriching world of educational ocean travel. Embark on eco-conscious adventures that combine learning with sustainability.


Imagine exploring world wonders whilst learning about marine biology, conservation, and sustainable practices contributing to the preservation of our beautiful oceans.'

At Driftawave, we could not be more proud to have been featured alongside National Geographic. This special publication, dedicated towards
Earth Ocean Day, aims to drive awareness and attention towards these important topics.

Thank you IRK Living for this incredible feature!

"After graduation, I defied the traditional career path, driven by an insatiable curiosity and a burning passion to explore the world." explaines Driftawave Founder Gina Schinkel, "The pandemic forced me to pivot – I lost my travel consultant job, and my dream of founding my own company was put on hold. But this detour wasn't without its rewards.  Through referrals, I landed incredible jobs that allowed me to travel the world on superyachts. I also delved into the world of tech sales, gaining valuable experience at one of the fastest-growing social media platforms. These experiences have only strengthened my resolve. I'm back with a renewed sense of purpose and a bigger mission: to help professionals achieve their travel dreams without sacrificing their careers. And that's when Driftawave was born!"
