Our Unique Hook
Sailing a Pro Ocean Narrative Into Main Stream Media
The Ocean Courier story expands the family of ocean advocates by attracting people not typically drawn to conservation media. Our unique hook— the story of two everyday people voyaging on a sailboat. .
We use interactive media to develop relationships with our audience as the story unfolds, transforming them into active participants. We bring you behind the scenes! Nothing is hidden. It’s real people, real issues, real solutions.
The heart of Ocean Courier is conservation. The situations may be dire, but our focus is always on the progress and the passion, the joys and successes. Ocean Courier inspires ocean interest, concern, and action.

We would love to believe that Ocean Courier operates solely on wind and solar power. But hey, lets be real! We can’t spread the message without your help. The good news is you don’t have to have deep pockets! Every dollar helps. Ocean Courier is a project of The Ocean Foundation, and all donations are made through their website.Support Ocean Courier
