about the blog.
Welcome to Okeanos blog, a place for my personal cetacean experiences, and updates about the captive orca population. Okeanos was originally created in 2009, but became neglected. In the summer of 2013, I started up Okeanos again to make it what you see before you now.
~ Profiles on all living captive orcas can be found on the bar on right.
~ Listings of the captive orcas birthdays can be found here.
~ A selection of significant events in the captive orca industry can be found here.
~ The names and locations of all captive orcas that have since passed away can be found here.
~ A family tree of the captive orcas can be found here.

about me.
At the age of 10 after a trip to Florida I became very interested in Dolphins and Cetaceans, and complied profiles about every single species. My interest became further directed towards Killer Whales, and after a trip to Marineland Canada in August 2003, I created my own website named Friend of the Orcas. The website ran for a few years, having many versions and a it's own domain once. When I hit my teenage years, I abandoned the website, but my love for Killer Whales didn't diminish and I still made sure to visit a park there were held ever year. To date I have visited Marineland Canada x2 (2003, 2004), SeaWorld Florida x3 (1996, 2002, 2018), SeaWorld California x 3 (1998, 2007, 2013), SeaWorld Texas x4 (2009, 2010, 2011), Six Flags Vallejo (2007), Loro Parque x 2 (2006, 2012) and Marineland France x7 (2004, 2005, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014), and Miami Seaquarium (2018).
