While we all do our best to stay in our homes and practice social distancing, it’s nice to dream about getting away from it all. The Guardian newspaper is providing a beautiful way to do so. The British publication gathered 10 of the best virtual ocean adventures to help us get away from our cooped-up lives.

The collection includes an interactive journey to the Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough, shark encounters with National Geographic, a 360-degree dolphin diving video, a virtual dive with playful sea lions in the Channel Islands and six other underwater adventures.

Click here, and even if just for a short time, transport yourself off of your couch. No prior scuba diving experience is required.
