About us

how did this all come about

A passion for the ocean

We believe that everyone who has a passion for the ocean has a part to play in marine conservation. It’s just about realising the part you have to play and gaining the confidence to go start making waves.

Our events are about helping ocean lovers realise their potential so they can turn their passions into positive action. We focus on combining BluExperience and Education. Memorable ocean experiences that provide those all important connections. Alongside education to enhance knowledge of marine environments and a better understanding of conservation.

 We hope that our ocean lovers leave with a head full of inspiration, a network of like-minded individuals and new found confidence to realise their true potential.
