What We Do

We teach about how wonderful the ocean is and what we can do to make a difference. We research different areas and sail around the world to educate all people about our cause. We believe that even a small effort can have a huge effect on reducing our impact. Humans have caused great amounts of damage to our amazing oceans and the only way to activate the masses is to educate them about what is going on. We research, educate, promote, sail, and share our experiences with our site visitors and we invite you to take part in the experience with us.


Help us make a good name for our generation and stand strong to Reduce Impact on the Sea.

Our Vision

One day humans will look out at the sea and smile knowing that mankind has protected its life as much as it has ours.

Single-use plastics are an ever-growing threat to our marine ecosystems.

Worldwide production has grown considerably from 1.7  million  tons in 1950 to 322 million tons in 2015, with single-use plastic packaging representing approximately 50% of the global market demand. 1

More than unsightly, plastics are deadly

More than 267 species were noted to have been negatively affected by plastic debris in marine environments, including whales, dolphins, turtles, and fish.2

Seas Lyfe

Seas Lyfe is a 70’ world expedition sailing research ship and lifestyle brand.

In other words: it’s a huge ship full of professional sailors turned activists sailing around the entire globe in November of 2018 to raise awareness about the health of the sea.

Cruise for a Cause with the Crew for a Cause

These passionate sailors, surfers, and fishermen are preparing for a 2 YEAR LONG around-the-world voyage to educate the world about what we are doing to our oceans. Seas Lyfe seeks out contaminants in the water to show people the damage being done first hand. The crew dissect fish bellies to look for evidence of toxins entering the food chain, and photo document their finding. They also educate in a myriad of fun ways. They are constantly interviewing scientists and experts about the ocean and wildlife to share knowledge with their viewers. They even sail into small villages and teach first hand lessons on improved and more sustainable fishing practices. These guys are all a family of amazing individuals who have a really cool cause to care about. Help us spread the word and tell your friends to follow the Seas Lyfe ship. They produce FREE video content of their adventures at sea and they also have a really neat and super trendy fashion line. The clothing line is very simple and the shirts are starting to be seen worn by watermen all over.

When asked about the unique spelling, they explained: “Seas Lyfe with a ‘Y’. Why?…… Because Life You Find Exploring”
