The Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that serves as the trustee for a network of underwater parks and works with valued partners to promote the health of America’s marine and Great Lakes waters through responsible and sustainable ocean uses.

In collaboration with The Ocean Agency, the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries features an incredible virtual dive gallery consisting of 360° videos and photos of national marine sanctuaries where you can take a virtual dive with sea lions or explore one-of-a-kind underwater views, fish communities, kelp forests, shipwrecks, and more located in the following sanctuaries: American Samoa, Florida Keys, Flower Garden Banks, Gray’s Reef, Monterey Bay, Olympic Coast, Stellwagen Bank, and Thunder Bay.

All you need is a computer or a smartphone! A virtual reality headset is optional but would probably make for an amazing experience.
