Ocean Life Identification

Skaphandrus
Ocean Life ID

Ever wondered what animals you see underwater?

Identifying marine animals may be difficult even for seasoned divers. Ocean Life ID is a simple and fast identification system developed by biologists, illustrators and divers so anyone can find the answer in an intuitive way. Just pick the visible features and the system will dynamically narrow down the number of species. It's a fun and easy way for you to know the names of the animals you find! You can then learn how, where and when you can find them again. Knowing about sea life was never made so easy!
