Quest for Adventure is an eco friendly specialist water sports, educational and leadership centre in Ajman, United Arab Emirates.
We are based in the beautiful Al Zorah area of the UAE's smallest Emirate, Ajman, a mere 260 square kilometres in size, and less than an hour from Dubai. Although the smallest emirate, it is home to the stunningly beautiful and previously unexplored Al Zorah Nature Reserve.
Conservation and Sustainability
The Al Zorah Nature Reserve is a RAMSAR listed, protected nature reserve, and is closed to the general public. Quest for Adventure are the only company permitted to enter the nature reserve and we are heavily involved with the conservation and sustainability of the area.
Our replanting program of mangrove seedlings within the Al Zorah Nature Reserve has been hugely successful and all mangrove trees planted count towards the country wide initiative to plant 100 million mangrove trees by 2030. Mangroves are the only evergreen forest in the Gulf and have a unique ability to survive in this habitat. Because of their ability to sequester carbon, one of the major benefits of mangroves is their ability to reduce the harmful greenhouse gases which cause climate change.
Quest for Adventure is extremely eco aware including using only electric motors on our spectacular Electric Canoe Tours, to help prevent unnecessary disruption to the wildlife in the area. We ensure to regularly clean up the mangroves and surrounding forest of any ocean trash, which we unfortunately see on a daily basis.
In 2019 Quest for Adventure made the wonderful decision to switch to filtered water using a fantastic water filter supported by Liquid of Life, based in the UAE.
We actively encourage the use of reusable water bottles, which are also available for purchase. Drinking water is provided on a complimentary basis to all our guests.
Beach and Ocean Clean Ups
Every day we are in the Al Zorah Nature Reserve we have an opportunity to make a difference by picking up litter from the water.
Ocean trash is a never ending issue and every single day without fail there is always something to remove from the ocean... plastic water bottles, old fishing nets, shoes, disposable cutlery... the list is endless.
