ocean_portalWe are Turning ocean lovers into ocean leaders through our newly redesigned online community portal.  BON’s re-branded and expanded website will be launched on November 16, 2016 to coincide with the annual Dive Equipment and Marketing Association (DEMA) Trade Show to be held in Las Vegas, November 16-19, 2016.

Change as a Lifestyle
The revamped news platform and community portal design reflects the metamorphosis of the brand from an online dive business and destination site into an all-encompassing ocean changemaker magazine with departments that feature all areas of the ocean lover’s lifestyle such as:  Recreation & sports, marine life, responsible travel, arts & culture, books, film & photography, food,  sustainable business, marine science, ocean issues,  ocean technology and innovation.

Blue Ocean News subscribers will gain access to the latest research and ocean alerts, original articles from experts, curated world news content, and unique contributed stories from its own action-oriented community members and collaborations with other changemaking media.

Filling the Needs of the Action-Oriented
Blue Ocean Network’s mission to connect ocean people and entrepreneurs more deeply to ocean action was primed by its growing tribe of concerned Blue Ocean Summit-goers who needed a meeting place to share and discuss ocean issues after the annual Summit was over.

“Our Summit participants were looking for a compassionate atmosphere, where like-minded people gathered, to learn and share, network, contribute and celebrate.”  – Laurie Wilson, Founder, Blue Ocean Network.

The goal of the new Blue Ocean Network site is to harness the power of this growing community of global citizens, and help them to engage in positive action through its upcoming 3rd annual Blue Ocean Summit (December 5-9, 2016).  Existing Blue Ocean Subscribers will automatically gain access to the new ocean portal.  To get onboard, receive complimentary membership, ocean-dedicated news magazine and member-only invitations  to upcoming learning events, changemakers can subscribe before the launch at
