Stride Review

Around since 1969, the Oceanic Society has stayed true to their original ideals: to teach travelers about the ocean, marine life, and encourage conservation.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They offer active ocean travel, exploration, and education around the world. With a strong focus on conservation, they are the perfect travel experience if you want to learn more about ocean life, movement, and history. Their tours involve such amazing experiences as whale watching, snorkeling, and even some yoga retreats. The point is to connect to the ocean and feel empowered to help keep them safe.

Who Travels With Them?

Water travel enthusiasts! If you love snorkeling, scuba diving, rafting, and other water (specifically ocean) sports, this is the company for you. They are especially popular among families for their educational focus.

Where Do They Operate?

They have expedition tours that go around the world with a focus on conservation - these include Kenya, Nicaragua, The Galapagos, and Cuba. Their other main focus is in North America, specifically the California coast and San Francisco.

Why Travel With Them?

They are a community of passionate conservationists as well as a tour company. Part of traveling with them is learning about the incredible marine wildlife around the world and how you can help protect threatened areas and species. If you’re seeking a company that has a community feel and a focus on ocean education, but also wants to make sure you have fun on your vacation, this is a great place to look.

From Oceanic Society

Since 1969, we have guided tens of thousands of travelers on life-changing journeys to explore the natural world. Again and again we have seen how conscientious nature tourism can transform the human relationship with the natural world by:

  • Making it pay to protect ecosystems—Growing the non-consumptive economic value of ocean resources through tourism means healthy oceans are valued by the communities and politicians who manage them.

  • Building an informed community of ocean advocates—Meaningful personal experiences with ocean wildlife and conservation issues turn our travelers into lifelong ocean advocates, armed with a deep understanding of the issues at hand and the tools to take action.

  • Supporting ocean research and conservation—By partnering with field-based research and conservation projects in the communities we visit, our travel programs provide financial support and manpower needed to study and protect ocean ecosystems both locally and regionally.

  • The Oceanic Society strives to provide life-changing experiences for their travelers that will inspire them to become more intimately involved in environmental conservation long after the expedition is over. Expeditions led by the Oceanic Society support  research and community development efforts in the areas visited.
