Ocean First understands the importance of fusing bonds to both our ocean and our community. We strive to create safe, memorable, long-lasting experiences. For us, our community is so much more than our valued customers, it’s also our staff, suppliers, partners, operators, and the local communities we visit on our adventures. Part of being a B-Corp is continuing to monitor and improve how we operate, manage resources, build relationships, and give back to our community and our planet.

“In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, we will understand only what we are taught.”

The B-Corp Movement

We are proud to be the ONLY B Corp Certified dive shop in the industry since February 18, 2016 when we joined the incredible and expansive global community of leaders using business as a force for good.

The B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service; it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it. And increasingly that’s what people care most about.

Certified B Corporations achieve a minimum verified score of 80 on the B Impact Assessment and make their B Impact Report transparent to the public - view ours here.

Our Core Values


Create an Amazing Experience

Whether it's the excitement of learning something new or experiencing the wonder of our ocean, we deliver adventure.

People & Planet Over Profits

We respect and value our community and everyone it affects, and we use our collective voice to benefit all people and the planet.

Foster & Support Conscientious Communities

We believe a corporation can be a positive beacon for its community, as well as connect people with common interests, passions, and goals.

Inspire Social & Environmental Change

We introduce people to new ideas, opportunities, and perspectives, helping them discover what's possible for the ocean and themselves.


We recognize that our business has inherent impacts on our planet, whether it’s the energy to heat our pool, the planes we board, or the dive boats that circle our bubbles below, and we use our best efforts to reduce and minimize those impacts. We strive to achieve this by working with manufacturers, resorts, and travel destinations that share our approach to sustainability and social responsibility. At the end of the day, we are firm believers that we do not inherit our planet from our ancestors, but borrow it from our children and everything we do reflects this custodial sentiment.
