With us being quarantined in our boats, vans, houses, it’s a good time to enrich our knowledge, to get inspired for future adventures, and to learn and think more about how to approach life and the planet after the Corona virus peak. It’s a wake-up call! We need a change in the world and in the people’s mindsets. The question is how are we going to respond? It’s time to rethink the ways we are doing this, individually and as a whole. Here is some inspiration.

Social Media is tempting but noisy too. Be selective on what you consume. It’s hard to find the good stuff amongst the noise. So I’ve curated a few inspiring, thought-provoking and free (at this moment) ocean, adventure movies to watch. Enjoy! And don’t forget to support the creators by sharing and reviewing the messages they are sharing.


We can only do good if we feel good! Transcendence explores the current state of our physical, emotional, and mental health. 5 episodes on life and health transformation.  Free online screening until March 26!

Artifishal explores the worrisome man dominating fish breeding. It is an ocean adventure movie about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.


What would a more resilient world look like? That’s what the filmmakers aimed to broadcast. With the Corona Virus taking over the world causing a global shutdown it’s time to reflect on the broken systems of our world. The filmmakers have decided to stream it for free now we’re in this crisis (Thank you!). Watch and learn about permaculture and closed circular systems.
