Getting Away from It All While Staying Put

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.
