Diving the world’s oceans
You may know that our oceans cover more than 70 percent of the earth’s surface, but did you know that humans have only explored a total of less than five percent of the oceans? In celebration of World Ocean Day, we want to explore the best dive sites within the seven seas. From the small tropical islands of the Pacific to the crystal-clear waters of the Indian, over to to the wild and rough Atlantic, every ocean has its diverse underwater characteristics and brings something unique to the table. This week, let us help you discover magical dive sites you have never heard of before!

Discover the world’s most fascinating aquatic life
Aquatic life under our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams is amazing! From microscopic zooplankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale, underwater life comes in all possible shapes and sizes. With 71% of the earth being covered with water, it is no wonder we are so fascinated with what lies beneath the surface. In fact, scientists estimate that there are nearly 1 million different species of aquatic animals. Freshwater ecosystems are home mainly to fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, whereas the ocean contains a wide array of marine life including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, reptiles, sharks, and marine mammals like whales, dolphins, seals, and manatees.
