Now that we are leaving our little house on the prairie of St. Eustatius, we take a look at Statia’s gateways to the world: port and airport. Even though the access to the island changed over the years, they kept their very own charm. Last summer, Statians responsible for these […]Weiterlesen
Blog: Dive, travel, connect & protect
Our English blog „Dive, travel, connect & protect“ presents 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 bring 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 want more than just to document, we follow our curiosity, learn from others, and grow with each and every experience.
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).
In episode 54 of Take a Minute to Relax, we introduce you to a rather flashy reef character: the ELECTRIC CLAM (Ctenoides ales). The underwater world is filled with many wonders. Just when you thought you’d seen it all, the ocean presents you with the electric clam. Ctenoides Ales as […]Weiterlesen
Trigger warning: This is a love story. It even has one of these cheesy happy ends. Therefore, to all those of you looking for some sad news, drama, or despair: keep on reading. As that is how it all began. After all, “Life is what happens when you are busy […]Weiterlesen

Starring in episode 53 of “Take a Minute to Relax” is a bundle of cuteness that is commonly known as a “sea bunny”, whereas scientists like to name it “Jorunna parva”. This little fluffball is obviously not related to any land-dwelling bunnies. It is, in fact, a species of dorid […]Weiterlesen
„Take a Minute in Statia 005“ takes off the ground to show you a bird’s eye perspective of the island. While we explored the Botanical Garden and the Bird Trail (see short descriptions of all trails in the Quill National Park below), Yoeri flew the drone to capture this aerial […]Weiterlesen
In this episode of “Take a Minute to Relax” we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful creature that goes by the Hawaiian name of Humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa, or Humu-Humu for short. Although this may sound nice, roughly translated it means “triggerfish with a snout like a pig”. Outside of Hawaii though, […]Weiterlesen
Discover Statia on foot! Hiking the Quill and other parts of this beautiful island is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the nature, culture and history of St. Eustatius. On top of that, it is healthy, diverse and fun. That is why the clip series „Discover Statia“ starts off […]Weiterlesen
Lately, we are hiking a lot, discovering more and more flora and fauna on Statia. One of the biggest wildlife moments of the last year happened on our veranda though. Take a minute in Statia to watch green tree lizards (Anolis bimaculatus) mating. Take a minute in Statia: Green tree […]Weiterlesen
In this relaxing episode, we would like to present you with a mesmerising performance by Banggai cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni) dancing with the swell of the ocean. These beautiful creatures grow to a size of about 8 centimetres (3 inches), which makes them a great bite-sized snack for many would-be predators. […]Weiterlesen
