OCEANS WITHOUT LIMITS
We’re not looking to break records or become pioneers. Instead, we explore the road less travelled while we research and attempt to understand the desperate plight of our oceans. We dive deep into the devastating world of marine plastic pollution while producing a revealing documentary film. Utilising the power of film to capture our journey, we aim to create awareness, give back and inspire change.

We have all been touched by the Ocean in some form or another, with a few of us having been fortunate enough to call the Ocean ‘our office’. We are now in a position to give something back and use our journey across the Indian Ocean to highlight the plight of Plastic Pollution.Read More
An adventure of a life time on the Indian Ocean brought three men together to explore ways to end the plastic horror engulfing our marine life. By using the latest in video and camera technology we will provided continuous insight into our travels, capturing life at sea, all action on board the motor yacht ACHARNE.Read More
The concept of taking a well-respected ex-racing yacht and converting it to a serious ocean passage making motoryacht is not new. By reducing the yacht’s displacement by removing the sailing rig, modifying the keel, and installing a larger engine you create an extraordinary explorer yacht.Read More
The journey covered some of the most spectacularly beautiful and isolated places in the worlds. After the completion of the trip a feature-length documentary was created to share what we had captured, this is Oceans Without Limits.Read More
Seagrass is a true flowering plant that grows in clumps and can form extensive underwater beds. The physical structure of seagrass beds provides a combination of food and habitat which allows for high biomass and productivity of commercially important fish species. The seagrass beds in the Indian Ocean region also act as a nursery for species that inhabit adjacent habitats such as coral reefs and mangroves.
Seagrass is a bio-engineer of soft sediment habitats and maintains shoreline stability by preventing erosion of the sediment with its roots and rhizomes which disrupts currents and promotes the settling of suspended sediments and restricts their resuspension. Seagrass may also have a similar effect on suspended microplastic particles and thus increase the amount of microplastic in the sediment in areas inhabited by seagrass beds causing adverse effects within the ecosystem and its fauna.
The aim of our study was to test whether seagrass beds cause an increase in the quantity of microplastic in the sediment in the Indian Ocean where many people are reliant on the sea for both protein and income.
Due to the relevant literature, a higher quantity of microplastic was expected in areas where seagrass is present compared to areas where it is absent
Our aim is to educate, create awareness and SHARE OUR research!
