Oceanographers are like detectives of the sea, and they study all the amazing things that happen underwater. They use cool tools like submarines and robots to explore the deep, dark depths of the ocean and discover new things. They learn about the waves, tides, colourful coral reefs and funny-looking fish!

Oceanography also helps us understand how the ocean affects the weather and the homes of sea creatures. By learning about oceanography, we can keep our ocean safe and protect the wonderful world beneath the waves. So, let’s put on our scuba gear and dive in to explore the secrets of the sea!
