International Oceanus Society located in Waterbury, CT 06708

INSPIRING and EMPOWERING people worldwide to take part in EXPLORING and PROTECTING the world’s oceans.

International Oceanus Society is an organization of divers with various affiliations. We host seminars, plan dives, have cookouts and other activities that are open to certified divers of all levels and people of all ages that are interested in learning more about ocean conservancy. Our dive program consists of local New England dives and occasional trips to international dive locations. We regularly schedule local dives with many of the various dive charter boats.

As long as the weather’s good, IOS dives nearly every Saturday and Sunday throughout the season. We typically have both a basic, beginner Open Water dive and a more advanced dive each weekend along with planned fresh/salt water cleanup projects and much more. The schedule is always subject to change.

The International Oceanus Society (IOS) serves as a voice for ocean wildlife. We are an independent organization, staffed by a committed group of divers, professionals and passionate advocates who have defended our oceans for many years.

IOS works on the big issues concerning the sea. Our key focus is to create community awareness, help make our fisheries sustainable and protect and recover our threatened ocean wildlife, such as our sharks, seals and whales.We also work to protect our precious coasts from inappropriate development.

A key component in all of our campaigns is to give our oceans the best chance of resilience against climate change impacts. If we can keep our oceans in the healthiest and most natural state, without pressures from overfishing and pollution, then they will have increased ability to cope with these changes.

As part of this focus, we work to improve water quality and reduce pollution and marine debris, which entangles, chokes and smothers our marine life and habitats.

If you want to help ensure our coasts and oceans remain healthy and free for tomorrow’s generations, join us today.
