About Oceanvida
Oceanvida Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving our ocean through education and non-motorized water sports.   Oceanvida was founded on the principle that the ocean can provide tremendous benefits to humankind, not just  in the way of food and other ecosystem services, but also emotional wellbeing and happiness.  So connecting people with the ocean via water sports became our main mission. We also believe that every person should know about the serious problems affecting our ocean today so we can all find solutions.  We take a holistic approach to ocean conservation, promoting a way of life that leads to healthy oceans and happier people.
Educational Approach
Oceanvida education programs address two important issues: ocean degradation and the need to reconnect people--especially children--with nature / the ocean.  Overwhelming research shows that exposure to nature is vital for a child’s mental and physical development.  Our courses are designed to help students academically, physically and socially.  Our groundbreaking, hands-on approach allows us to stimulate and engage every student in our activities, be it learning to paddle or measuring the pH of ocean water.
