FIRST MATE Ocean Adventure Travel & Conservation Media |

I’m looking for a first mate to help me grow to better assist the dreamers, do-ers and adventure-seekers for ocean adventure travel and contributing to ocean conservation.

You’ll make a significant contribution to my ocean conservation mission, social business, and accordingly to a healthier ocean.


theOceanpreneur is a social business aspiring to protect the Ocean through inspiration, information, and empowerment for action and ocean adventure travel. I make splashes but to really make an impact we must make waves. I need more hands on deck to implement the ideas. Are you up for a challenge?
