TheOceanRoamer starts streaming knowledge and awareness

After more than 3 decades of professional diving, I have stories to tell.
And a vast wealth of knowledge at Sea, working at all levels in the diving & marine tourism industries to share.

TheOceanRoamer announces the start of several online WEB TV Series, with regular uploads starting this August. Full Videos will be available in our B(V)log section, but also on my Youtube channel and Facebook page.

RSMA|ERC project relocating

It is with regret that a few days ago, we were informed that our agreement and future projects, with the Red Sea University's are canceled.
The renewed political turmoil in the country, since last October 2021, left the Red Sea University virtually without management, and most of it's colleges were closed. More recently the current governmental administration had decided to replace all key positions in universities around the country, also the Red Sea University did not escape.

A major milestone! Both the IADP and GOBLU3 projects have left the Matrix

Dear Friends, colleagues, partners and loyal supporters

It is with great pleasure I announce the turning of an important page in our story.

Some of you know that #OPREDSEA is actually the embodiment, or rather physical result of work I started in 2006, while working in a tent on the shorelines of Sudan. During which time I devised both the IADP -DIVE PROFESIONALS organization, and it’s subordinate GOBLU3 (Marine Ecology) concept.
