Ocean has given over 200 professional presentations and is very comfortable speaking in front of strangers and large groups. Ocean enjoys sharing inspiring and useful information and caters each presentation to each audience. Please email OneOceanDiving@gmail.com to inquire about rates for Zoom lectures, presentations, and more.
Ocean volunteers to give presentations in schools via @OneOceanEducation and leads field trips for students to join her in the field @OneOceanDiving.
Ocean is natural Freediver reaching 100ft on her own at a young age with no training. Ocean trained to break the USA nation record and accomplished a 6:45 static breath-hold in training. When she attempted to break the record in front of the judges she has an equipment hold up and blacked out right around 6:30 after being unable to keep her head above water because her foot was caught on a weight and float. Ocean doesn't have time to train for competitions but she still enjoys teaching classes when she can make time and still freedives daily for her work with sharks. Check out @OneOceanFreediving for the next class and some great Freediver photos.
Ocean has been teaching SCUBA professionally for over 17 years. As an MSDT she holds over twenty distinctive instructor level specialties to teach everything from wreck diving to cave, night, drysuit diving, and many more. Ocean has certified thousands of people. Unfortunately, but fortunately, Ocean is busy with marine conservation and no-longer actively teaches except for special shark and divemaster programs here and there. Bonus fact: Her first stunt gig was doubling the main actress for the 2009 movie "Into the blue, the reef" for her Scuba and Freediving scenes.
Ocean Ramsey is 5'9 and worked as a professional runway, fashion, bikini, and lifestyle model in Hawaii starting in her early 20's. She shoots in her conservation benefit signature Xcel wetsuit line underwater now more than on land however she still does some shoots for companies she cares about. Check out the sustainable bikini line she helped start @OneOceanBikini's to see more of her lifestyle images.
Ocean is also a SAG/Aftra member and has acted in a few shows after having performed many stunts for Movies and other shows that filmed in Hawaii. Stunts including repelling out of helicopters, fights, falls, dirt bikes, and of course a lot of underwater work.
Trained by the best, Ocean Ramsey was taught how to shoot professional underwater images and video by her Professional photographer/videographer husband @JuanSharks
See his website TheSharkPhotographer.Com
She has her own Cannon 5DM4 and Nauticam and AquaTech housings and is almost never in the water without at least a GoPro which she prefers for her daily research.
Ocean is passionate about safety and especially about keeping people safe when going diving with sharks. "If an accident happens, who gets blamed when it makes news headlines? The sharks, even though there is more often than not some kind of human influence to an adverse interaction. It is important for conservation moving forward to take every preventable action possible to avoid shark bites in any shark diving operation for the sake of people's lives and the sake of the sharks reputation. Be responsible, train for the worst, but be respectful, aware, and knowledgable to be able to avoid injuries in the first place." -Ocean Ramsey
Ocean has trained her own shark safety teams, certified thousands of first responders, and worked with huge corporations to develop safety measures for water based operations as a their safety officer. Ocean has worked as a professional water-safety for many productions and specialty projects.
Ocean gets thousands of emails each day and her wonderful amazing office staff do their best to respond back to as many as possible. Currently Ocean and Juan both do around 1-2 interviews per week and the waitlist is growing so we recommend the following options:
Referencing Ocean's book for quotes and insight
Referencing previous interviews
Emailing your questions over so there is not a delay in scheduling time for a live call. Ocean works 7-days a week and current requests put the waitlist for interviews at over one year out. She does however do her best to record audio answers to questions that are emailed over since she can read these and email the audio file at any point of the day.
If you really want to get an interview in a specific time schedule we recommend booking her time the same as you would for a presentation but instead structure it as a Q&A interview. Please inquire for current rates usually around $500 for 30 min.
Ocean loves to do as much positive media for sharks as possible however with so many projects and no days off she has very limited time and her day is structured to work from sunrise till after dark. Ocean, Juan, and the whole OneOcean team appreciate the support of media influence, articles, podcasts, video's, and more and hope to work with you soon.
Due to the increasing # of requests there is a 3-4 month delay.
For image requests please email : OneOceanDiving@Gmail.Com Attn: Image request. Please provide screen shots of images or video you are requesting and links and give detail about your project.
