40+ MUST WATCH Documentaries All About The Ocean! (2020)


In this surreal time of social distancing and self isolation, we've been wondering a lot about the best way to stay sane and occupied through such a difficult and, most likely, lonely time for so many people... Staying connected is important, but social media can quite quickly get a bit too much at the moment, so instead, we’ve turned to watching a bunch of documentaries to help us get by as they always have a funny way of warming our hearts, getting us inspired and of course making us all-the-more aware of how we can be better humans for the planet. If you’re looking for a few documentary ideas too, then here are all of our favourites that are all about the ocean!
