The I AM WATER Ocean Conservation Trust was founded in 2010 by passionate ocean lovers who acknowledge that mankind and nature cannot survive without each other. We believe ocean degradation is fundamentally due to human disconnect, and the way to change the course for our oceans is engaging and educating individuals on their role for a healthy planet.

Our blue planet may be divided by continents, but it is united by oceans. For the more than seven billion people on our rapidly growing planet, solving the challenges to our shared, sustainable future relies on the knowledge of individuals along with the conservation of resources.  We provide global opportunities to engage and educate ocean-users with the world beneath the waves and to understand their personal opportunity to protect the planet.

I AM WATER Ocean Conservation is excited to introduce I AM WATER Ocean Travel, our boutique adventure travel company offering intimate wildlife encounters with the ocean’s most majestic creatures from dolphins to seals, humpback whales and manta rays to bull and tiger sharks to name a few. Our team consists of world class freedivers and marine experts who will take you on a once-in-a-lifetime journey into the ocean - mind, body and spirit. Not only do we adhere to the highest standards of responsible marine megafauna interaction, but through I AM WATER Ocean Travel we generate funds to support the projects of I AM WATER Ocean Conservation.



Our mission is to ignite a movement of ocean minds across the planet who understand, experience and protect our global oceans.
