What We Do
Blue Endeavors is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 with the aim of promoting interest in, and creating a passion for, ocean conservation and discovery.
Current Alameda Facility: Dive Center/Community Hub
In August 2017, we opened our first dive facility dedicated to ocean conservation, citizen science, ocean exploration and community action in Alameda, CA.
Be a part of the vision. With your continued support we will open our explore store, the science and exploration center that trains the next generation of underwater explorers and ocean advocates.
You can make a difference.
Become a Member
Become a Blue Endeavors member for access to all our scuba classes, local dives, citizen science and other really cool opportunities like climbing inside prototype submarines that exceed depths of 1000 meters!
All our memberships are "One-For-One." For each month you are a member we donate a month to a student that cannot afford it.
Spread the Word
Do you know someone interested in scuba diving? Someone interested in ocean conservation or research? Or citizen science? Someone with time to donate looking to make a positive impact in the community? Tell your friends and family about all of the exciting ways to become an ocean advocate. You can make a huge difference by spreading the word. Get involved today!
The impact of 2017 donations is both great and immediate. Your donation will assist us to bring Blue Endeavors into a unique space in acclaimed oceanographer Sylvia Earle’s DOER Marine and expand our current educational programs. Your donation will also help us cover costs associated with our conservation projects that seek quantifiable solutions to the environmental crisis.
Our mission at Blue Endeavors is to create a virtuous circle where charitable donations are not an essential component of our growth. We believe the path to a sustainable educational program that benefits environmental causes must be based on a sound business model and not rely on charity for its continued existence. However, we are currently in our initial phase of development, and do need your help to properly fund the expense our initial programs. We hope you realize that generosity during this time will enable our programs to reach the necessary level to be self-sustaining.
Blue Endeavors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Thank you for your donation to our mission.
"Use your own special talent to help fight for the ocean"
“Look in the mirror, consider your talents, and think about how you might use them to make a difference. Some have artistic skills, others are good with numbers or have a way with words. Everyone has power to make a difference as an individual, or by joining the company of others who share a common goal. The key is in knowing that what you do matters, including doing nothing!” – Dr. Sylvia Earle
