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.
Through our hugely successful replanting program of mangrove seedlings within the Al Zorah Nature Reserve, we are aiming to be carbon neutral by 2020, in line with the UAE's 2021 Vision for Sustainable Environment. 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 electric motors on our spectacular Mangrove Tours, to prevent unnecessary disruption to the wildlife in the area.
We also offer wakeboarding on a cable, an eco friendly alternative to a motorboat, in additional to eco friendly activities such as paddle boarding, bicycle rental and archery.
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 do not sell or supply any beverages in single use plastic bottles and 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, and drinking water is also provided on all our Mangrove Tours using sterilised reusable water bottles for guests to enjoy.
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.
