The team of professionals behind Bluewater Photo, Bluewater Travel, and the Underwater Photography Guide has announced the launch of a new online learning portal dedicated to the oceans.

Bluewater University – or BluewaterU for short – offers a large selection of live classes and seminars covering underwater photography and videography, post-processing and editing, travel and adventure, marine life, and a host of other topics related to the sea. The subjects will be covered by a team of instructor that, between them, have amassed several decades worth of knowledge in their subjects.

The timing of the launch means the addition of another ocean-related online learning platform to keep divers and underwater enthusiasts involved as the world continues to struggle with coronavirus travel restrictions. 'We want to provide a platform to keep people excited about diving, travel, photography & video,' said founder Scott Gietler. 'The goal of this site is for professionals to share their expertise in various scuba-related fields.' offers opportunities for both students and prospective instructors. Instructors wishing to teach their own programmes can create their own classes, set their own prices and take a share of the revenue generated. The classes and seminars are typically one-hour long and available at various times of the week to cater for different schedules and budgets. The programmes include introductory and advanced level curriculums, and some free courses will be available.
