The Ocean Challenge evolved out of the idea that it would be fun to travel the world. But to do it in a way that gave the world something back.

From acorns mighty oaks are formed.

So an idea was born. To set some lofty challenges and find a way to deliver on them, so that we could meet some core mission objectives along the way, and end up making a difference.

Our oceans are a massive carbon store, and their ecosystems provide everything from a big chunk of our food chain, to the basis of the tourist trade for many many smaller countries. They are worth protecting, not just for us, but for future generations too.

The Ocean Challenge is about helping to protect our oceans and the whole-water life cycle of the planet, and telling the story of them along the way, to encourage more people to get involved, who will do so by respecting our oceans, seas and waterways and life that lives in them.

Our ongoing challenges are based around missions, finite, achievable and can make a difference, large or small, then on to new missions, directed by science and the need of the oceans themselves.

Covid stopped us launching when we wanted, but the world changed for everyone, not just for us, so we sat and waited it out, like everyone else had to.

Now we are about to launch again. We hope you’ll join us and help make a difference.
