Collaboration, Learning, Empowerment

Oceans Week Victoria was launched in 2020 to foster connection and engagement within the community by providing a platform to support ocean-inspired events on southern Vancouver Island. We help facilitate and promote inclusive and accessible community events, no matter how large or how small, with a focus on education, conservation, and fun!  

 

We invite residents, businesses, Indigenous groups, scientists, educators, youth… everyone to get involved!

Blue Jellyfish SUP Adventures is honoured to volunteer on the organizing committee and we encourage you to check out the Oceans Week Victoria website to discover a full roster of events and activities both virtual and in person that are happening this year, for the entire family. Come explore your big, blue backyard with us 🐋
