Experience New Depths
Ocean First was founded in 2005 to be an advocate for marine science education and ocean conservation. Being passionate divers and explorers , we recognized little was being done to educate people about our ocean, the importance and fragility of our marine environments, and what we, as both beneficiaries and custodians of these incredible ecosystems, can do to protect and preserve them for future generations.
Our mission is to create and support a community of ocean enthusiasts who are passionate about experiencing and preserving our marine environments. Whether swimming, diving, or experiencing the ocean in their own sublime way, our customers share an infectious passion and excitement that transcends their daily lives. Our love of the ocean is the inspiration for our swim and dive instruction, travel services, marine biology education, and sustainability. Our approach to ocean conservation is simple - we believe a healthy ocean is a healthy planet.
