Because we care about
the marine environment
and the future of our planet
Luminocean connects scuba divers, volunteers, gap years, and those fascinated by the ocean, with local people to support marine conservation efforts. Luminocean offers consulting services to dive centers that would like to become more environmentally responsible and to schools and universities to integrate a curriculum that emphasizes raising awareness for the marine environment.
Luminocean is the branding for the combined work of the social enterprise PT Marina Citra Selaras and the foundation Yayasan Cahaya Samudera Indonesia. Both are registered in Indonesia. Joint cause is to build human capacity to protect Indonesia's valuable marine resources and with this contribute to the future of our blue planet. We can only live on this planet if we change our life style and become more aware of challenges we will face in the next decades.
About Our Passion
We believe that people can live in harmony with nature, that they are aware of their impacts and their own ability to change to live a happier, healthier, and more sustainable life. Our aim is protecting the coastal and marine environment, as well as conserving biological diversity and mitigating the impacts of ocean threats. We do this through sharing knowledge to empower people to take charge of their own development and improve their lives by conserving nature.
What we do
We aim at the protection of our blue planet by providing consulting services, information and courses to the following audience:
Students from all over the world are welcome to take our classes or conduct an internship mentored by us to develop their practical skills in marine biology or related fields. As a student, you are also welcome to suggest your school to conduct excursions to any of the sites where we work together with our dive center partners.
Scuba Divers & Travelers
You don't need a marine biology background to join us. As an enthusiastic diver or soon-to-be diver, you can participate in our courses and learn more about the underwater world and coral reefs. By taking a course you will have a positive impact on the environment and the education of local students.

We invite universities to contact us for information about cultural exchange and excursions during which students can learn about marine ecology and directly practically apply what they have learned. We have cooperated with the University Bochum, Germany, successfully in this matter since 2017.
We offer consulting services to dive centers from all over Indonesia to improve their environmental responsibility and reduce their negative impact on the marine environment. Joint Ecodiver courses for staff and guests can also be conducted. Please contact us or more information.
