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 this episode of “Take a Minute to Relax”, we would like to focus your attention on a small treasure, that’s easy to overlook: Sarasvati Anemone Shrimp (Periclimenes sarasvati).

Observing animals and learning not only about but also from them and finally interacting with one another is what we love most in diving. However, our passion for nature doesn’t end underwater. For starters, we present you with our personal view on the teachings of a Lesser Antillean Bullfinch (Loxigilla […]Weiterlesen
