The redesigned timeline now highlights stunning check-ins and photos from around the world.
Dive tagging When a buddy tags you in a dive, you can add it to your logbook with a tap.
Stacking Multiple dives the same day are now stacked together for a better overview and a cleaner look.
The check-in tool suggest nearby and recent dive sites for even faster logging.
Citizen Science Oceans tagging feature has been extended with environmental reports for citizen science projects.
Cover Photos Drag and sort dive photos to select a cover photo and let your dive shine.
Your logbook now includes a profile tab. Add a photo and a bio to tell something about yourself and your adventures.
Heatmap The profile tab also features a world view with a heat map of all dive sites you have checked-in. Make it glow!
Together with a worldwide community of divers, we're co-creating a map of the global ocean's teeming life, vivid habitats and fragile environment for anyone to explore.
Get inspired from your friends' adventures — or browse through an endless stream of logs, photos and highlights.
Oceans intelligently knows where you are and makes logging your sites and observations fast and intuitive. Offline mode allows for check-in even where mobile networks are off limit. Sharing oceanic endeavors has never been easier.
Your log book will always be with you — safely stored in the cloud — and ready to be shared with friends and family wondering what's life under water is like.
The Discover tab let's you roam the world's oceans in search for your next adventure. Find out the best spot for whale sharks, a manta ray cleaning station, or colonies of playful sea lions. Let's start planning for future dive trips!
The timeline highlights some of the best dives from all of Oceans. Every weekend, one dive is selected #DiveoftheWeek, and featured on Oceans' Instagram and Twitter feeds followed by over 40,000 ocean champions worldwide! Is your dive the next #DiveoftheWeek?
Out of all #DiveoftheWeek entries, one is selected #DiveoftheYear by our ambassador Fabien Cousteau. The winner in 2017 was Xaal Fazaal from the Maldives:
"The whale shark is the largest fish in the ocean, yet we still know very little about them. Xaal's photo captures the grace and peaceful nature of this beautiful and endangered species. Congrats Xaal, you are the winner of the Dive of the Year awards 2017!” — Fabien Cousteau
#DiveoftheYear Awards will be back again in early 2018, stay tuned!
We are thrilled to announce that aquanaut, filmmaker, TED speaker and environmental advocate Fabien Cousteau is joining Oceans.
As the first grandson of ocean exploration pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Fabien spent his early years aboard his famous grandfather’s ship, the Calypso, and learnt how to scuba dive on his fourth birthday. Fabien champions the Cousteau legacy of exploration, and will work with Oceans in its efforts to increase awareness of the global ocean’s environment and habitats together with our users and ambassadors around the world.
Fabien Cousteau: “Oceans use of digital tools to gather crowd sourced data is a fantastic way to learn and increase awareness of the changes in the global ocean’s environment. I’m looking forward to joining this amazing community of ocean explorers and working together for a better understanding of the problems facing the underwater world we all love.”
In 2016 Fabien founded the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center to fulfill his dream of creating a vehicle to make a positive change in the world.
Oceans goal is to make the underwater world universally accessible to everyone. We believe digital technology is a great way to reach this goal, and creating awareness of a world otherwise hidden to most of us.
With Oceans 2.0, introducing features to log environmental reports and observations, we are building a platform for citizen science, allowing our global user base to act as a crowd sourced team of field workers, together collecting vast amounts of oceanic data — and enabling visual projections on the health and state of marine habitats.*
90% of the Great Barrier Reef is hit by coral bleaching — killing almost one third of the reef’s coral due to global warming and ocean acidification caused by human CO2 emissions.
Without change, the oceans is expected to contain more plastic than fish in 2050. One example is the Great Pacific garbage patch, a collection of marine debris at the size of Texas, and spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan.
Over the last 30 years, 90% of the ocean’s shark population has been wiped out, leaving over one third of all species endangered. Illegal fishing is the main reason for the decrease in shark poulation.
* Oceans will use crowd sourced anonymized and non-personal observations to visualize the global ocean's environment starting in 2018.
Oceans was founded in 2014 with a mission to make the underwater world universially accessable to anyone, everywhere. Together with our ambassadors and tens of thousands of ocean champions, we are co-creating the number one global community for divers and ocean explorers around the world — Join us!
