About Us

Via The Ocean is my 'brain child'  conceived I feel the very first time I paddled in the ocean at Bexhill-on-Sea, nurtured by being allowed to 'stay up' to watch Jacques Cousteau... 

Since those early days I have been lucky enough to travel the world scuba diving, sailing, swimming, body boarding (surfing has always eluded me, although it is a hobby of mine to watch) and walking the coast lines.  I have a love affair of all things 'ocean' but most importantly over the years have become concerned about the health of our oceans and the amazing mammals, creatures and eco systems that are suffering at human hands.

Via The Ocean was set up to allow people to buy beautiful gifts for themselves, families and friends but also to allow us to donate money to charities and causes that we know are doing their very best to protect what we love.
