Our Mission

The International SeaKeepers Society promotes oceanographic research, conservation, and education through direct involvement with the yachting community. Providing educational resources and hands-on marine science experiences to students is the primary focus for ensuring the future wellbeing of our planet. SeaKeepers enables the yachting community to take full advantage of their unique potential to advance marine sciences and raise awareness about global ocean issues.

Members of SeaKeepers include influential opinion leaders who believe that the best way to protect the environment is to protect the world's oceans. Our members recognize the oceans' critical importance to the life of our planet. SeaKeepers is thus deeply committed to finding real-world solutions to the problems now plaguing our seas.

Our small but distinguished membership includes entrepreneurs, yachtsmen, corporations, divers, scientists, and concerned citizens building a global movement to help restore and protect the world's oceans. As a private/public collaborative effort, SeaKeepers focuses on critical ocean issues in cooperation with government agencies, other like-minded organizations, the academic community, and the public. Our motto is, "Research. Educate. Protect and Restore.”

What We Do

The International SeaKeepers Society supports marine science and conservation by utilizing privately owned yachts as platforms for oceanographic research, educational outreach, and marine conservation. Our efforts eliminate vessel costs and permit scientists to allocate those funds to maximize research potential.
