One Ocean International

One Ocean International was founded by Joe Knight in 2012.

Joe is a professional freediver,  surfer, sailor, paramedic, nutrition and lifestyle consultant, offshore survival trainer and in 2004 was awarded a Maritime Commander Australia Commendation by the Royal Australian Navy whilst on deployment in South East Asia .

Joe has also completed Surf Lifesaving Australia's "Surf Gold" examination.

Joe has trained with some of the best freedivers in the world including Umberto Pellizari, William Thuebridge and Jonathan Sunnex. 

Joe’s passion is to enhance everyone’s understanding of the ocean, and as a result, how we interact with it.

One Ocean International is a specialist watermanship training and ocean awareness organisation committed to:

  • Increasing awareness of the marine environment
  • Promoting a positive, active and healthy lifestyle
  • Creating a positive, pro- active and aware safety culture
  • Maintaining a strong connection to people, cultures and the environment

One Ocean International offers a broad spectrum of ocean related training courses and coaching. These span from freediving and specialist watermanship training, to medical and nutrition support.

One Ocean also offers underwater photography,  wetsuits, and first aid kits... yet it is unlikely it will stop there.

One Ocean International is driven to assisting people, cultures and the environment, for that reason 10% of all course proceeds will be donated to pro-active charities, see specific course blogs for which organizations were donated to.
