Welcome to the Florida Chapter of The Explorers Club!

The Explorer ClubThe Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904, the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide.

The Club provides assistance in expedition planning, awards fieldwork grants to scientists, writers, and photographers, and at our famed annual dinners, honors accomplishments in exploration. But probably the most powerful resource available to those who join the Club is fellowship with other members–a global network of expertise, experience, technology, industry, and support. The Explorers Club actively encourages public interest in exploration and the sciences through its public lectures program, publications, travel program, and other events.
