He inspired a generation about life under the sea, transporting audiences from our living rooms, to thousands of miles around the globe, thousands of feet beneath the surface.
Jacques Cousteau was first among explorers, on his ship the Calypso, taking us with him, on every adventure.
For him, almost everything was possible, conquering a sickly childhood and a devastating car crash to become one of the world's foremost explorers, and possibly its most famous Frenchman.
He challenged modern technology to keep up with his dreams -- inventing the aqualung, to go deeper underwater than ever before.
Cousteau challenged governments to stop polluting the ocean -- his second home -- and start taking better care of the environment, his voice speaking out for the farthest reaches of the earth.

Cousteau SOT "The future of mankind...bound with Antarctica.."


His work brought him both renown, and tragedy -- his son and heir apparent Philippe was killed in a seaplane crash (in 1979). His other son Jean-Michel continues Jacques Cousteau's work, mindful of his father's warning to the world: The future of civilization depends on water. I beg you to understand this.
