About Us

Founded in 2009 by Mark and Thisbe with the birth of their son Oceano, Kiss The Ocean is an authentic ocean loving lifestyle brand. 
Our story starts in the deep Pacific off Costa Rica filming and documenting the migration of hammerheads and includes our passion for world travel, family and all outdoor adventures. KTO is for the explorer in us all from mountain tops to deep below the ocean waves. We believe there's not a day we don't Kiss The Ocean.
Giving back by speaking at SXSW about sharks, guiding, teaching, volunteering and telling the story through our photography has been our passion since 1997. With KTO we hope to inspire everyone to Kiss The Ocean no matter the location. 
 
We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you Kiss The Ocean.
Your Fellow Ocean Loving Family,
Mark, Thisbe, Oceano, Indigo & Mako
