About Sea Fans

We’re fans of the sea. Are you?


Calling all Sea Fans. It’s now easier than ever to help protect the ocean and its marine life. Sea Fans is a one-stop-shop for ocean-friendly initiatives of all shapes and sizes. If it does something good for the ocean, then it’s in there (and if it’s not, please let us know so we can add it).

There are so many ways that you can help the ocean. To make things a little easier for you to find the ideas you’re interested in, we’ve divided the directory into 5 different categories:

1. Learn

There’s so much we don’t know about the ocean. Yet, a lot of its problems stem from not knowing. We’ve got the latest books, documentaries, lectures and more for Sea Fans of all ages. Fill your brain with awesome sea facts, then dazzle your friends. After all, teaching others is part of the solution.

2. Take Action

There are people campaigning for a better ocean for all of us. Lend your support by signing their petitions, or taking part in their campaigns. You may even be inspired to start your own. We’ve also got a ton of advice on how to live a more ocean-friendly life.  

3. Shop

Can shopping really benefit the ocean? Browse our ocean-friendly sellers and see. From jewellery made from old fishing nets, to recycled ocean plastic trainers. Every seller in the directory does something good for the ocean, so supporting them means supporting the ocean.

4. Dive In

The ocean is an amazing place. A chance encounter with a one of its inhabitants is something that stays with you for life. Discover ethical ways to experience the ocean from family days out to green scuba diving centres. Every listing puts the ocean’s wellfare first.

5. Volunteer

Discover hundreds of volunteer marine conservation projects all around the world. Monitor turtle nests or dolphin populations. Survey the health of coral reefs. Gather data on manta rays and sharks. Help replant mangroves or monitor nesting penguins, You never know what you might discover.

Everyone can do something to help the ocean.

It’s no secret that the ocean is in trouble. Climate change, plastic and pollution and over-fishing are just some of the biggest threats the ocean is facing today.

But let’s not despair. Millions of people around the world are already fighting for a cleaner, healthier ocean for all. And Sea Fans is here to promote their effort in whatever form it comes. Why not see for yourself how varied marine conservation can be?  

We’re Jerry & Amy and we’re Sea Fans.

We started Sea Fans in 2018 because we wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to get involved in marine conservation.

 We’re not marine biologists. We just love the ocean and want to do what we can to protect it…

Advertise on Sea Fans

Sea Fans is FREE to use. You can promote events, products, courses, books, petitions – anything and everything you like on our database. But – and this is a giant but – every advertisement must do something good for the ocean.

What do we mean by that? Well, if you’ve created a bracelet with a picture of a turtle on then that’s lovely. But it’s not really doing anything to benefit the ocean.

If your bracelet is made from old fishing nets salvaged from the sea bed, or you donate a percentage of your profits to an ocean-based charity, now we’re talking. Get in touch and we’ll add you to the Sea Fans directory and give you a shout out on our blog and social media too.
