What is Ocean Stories?

Ocean Stories is a series of free ‘Ted Talk’ style presentations and workshops that anyone is welcome attend. It comes from a project that Dive Ninjas founder, Jay Clue, has been working on building for the last few months and originally slated to launch this summer as a series of events in Cabo San Lucas to help support the great work our friends at Saving Los Cabos are doing. But with the current turn of events we thought it would be great if we could bring everyone currently stuck at home a little bit of sunshine and beautiful stories from the ocean directly into their living room! We reached out to our extended ninja family to see if anyone would be interested in giving online talks and the response has been overwhelmingly incredible!

The idea is to have a fun & casual way to connect to the ocean that we all love and miss through some awesome presenters from around the world, ranging from marine scientists, researchers, conservationists, photographers, and many more. Think of it as a platform to share the joy and beauty the oceans bring us with the rest of the world.  The webinars will take place live and include a Q&A session with each presenter after the talk. Each webinar will be around 45 minutes long so you can easily fit it into your day. They’re also kid friendly for the mini shark loving ninjas, and completely free of charge to everyone. You can find the registration link for each presentation above in the schedule. Please feel free to share it with your family, friends, students, or anyone else interested in learning about the ocean. We look forward to sharing these stories with everyone around the world!

A list of some of the upcoming presenters and topics can be found to the right. We’ll be updating this list often , so check back soon or catch us on Facebook and Instagram for more updates!
