How to give the gift of the ocean to your child

Last summer I was lucky enough to be able to introduce my two year-old niece Nyah to the ocean.

They were magical moments for both of us and Nyah is now absolutely in love with the beach and swimming. It’s so cool to get swimming updates from her and I look forward to teaching her more and watching her grow up an ocean kid.

Introducing your child to the ocean and ensuring they learn to love it as much as you do can be a tricky time for parents.
