Blog: Dive, travel, connect & protect
Our English blog „Dive, travel, connect & protect“ is presenting photos, videos, experiences, research, opinions and ideas from Devocean Pictures as well as fellow ocean and nature lovers and like-minded initiatives. Our little stories are meant to take you out into the world as well as bringing the world and its (natural) wonders back to all of us.
Dive and travel
Follow our travels to guide and guard to destinations all around the world. We dive into unknown territory and broaden our horizons. In this blog, we don’t only want to document, but also analyse ecologic, economic, political and social problems and patterns to be able to pick and promote alternatives.
Connect and protect
We present people, projects, products, and possibilities to inspire change: live, love and learn from one another. Life is a constant search, a never-ending journey we like to share. We aim to continuously evolve and educate (ourselves) – in and outside the water. Our actions affect others, affect the world. Change is possible to protect our blue planet.
„Dive, travel, connect and protect“ is fuelled by our passion, but our mission doesn’t come without detours, mishaps and constant challenges and we also like to point those out. After all, life is a journey, a constant learning process. Stories in our second blog Abgetaucht are particularly reflecting on those topics. With lots of love and devotion, we are painting an even more personal picture of the weird and wonderful world we are living in (German only).

Plastic is on our mind. Every high tide leaves behind a line of plastic on the beach of Amed. Every heavy rain shower washes half burned or openly collected rubbish from the settlements and streets into fields and streams, distributed by the wind, animals and more rain, eventually, most it […]Read More
It is carnival Monday: Alaaf! As that’s the expression, sort of hurray, that is used in the area around Colonge in Germany as well as Maastricht in the Netherlands, we stick to that regional greeting. Even though we are not big fans of the actual celebrations, we had planned our […]Read More

A warm welcome for the next members of the ambush predators: They got the look. The cackatoo and white face waspfish are the living proof that punk’s not dead, just in hiding, waiting for the right moment to make a move. Having difficulties getting out of bed during the day, in combination with […]Read More

Leaf scorpionfish (Taenianotus triacanthus), also called paperfish, are the most elegant of all the ambush predators. Not only are they dressed in classical colours, such as black, red, yellow and white, but they also show up in tints of pink, green, brown or ochre. All of them work with dark […]Read More
