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.

About Us

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.
