WARM HOLIDAY WISHES FROM THE DEPTHS OF OUR HEARTS (AND OCEANS)

In 2017, XenoPsi spread a message of peace and love with our Mission Mistletoe space launch. But for this year's holiday adventure, we decided to explore a frontier much closer to home. A frontier that is essential to all life on the planet. Our quest: to show how the ocean connects us all—even if we live oceans apart.

The ocean covers over 70% of Earth's surface, and yet, only 5% of it is charted territory. In fact, more is known about outer space than the complexity and depths of our own oceans, and researchers estimate that up to two thirds of marine life have yet to be discovered. As an agency inspired by the unknown, that gave us an idea. Could we take a break from all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, take a deep breath, and dive a little deeper? Make time to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the natural world? Escape to places few people get to see? And so, another immersive experience was born.

To bring it to life, we set off on a holiday voyage to explore some of the ocean's most precious marine ecosystems: coral reefs. We filmed our experience in high definition at three dive sites, capturing all of the beautiful, unexpected, and colorful sea life we found along the way. And with the help of J.J. Divers in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Kohala Divers in Kawaihae, Hawaii; and Scubafish in Ko Lanta, Thailand; XenoPsi shared "Season's Greetings" around the world: from the Caribbean Sea, to the Pacific Ocean, to the Andaman Sea.

As we head into 2019, we hope our underwater expeditions inspire you to slow down, dive deeper, and appreciate how precious and wonderous our oceans are. And remember:

The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat. -Jacques Cousteau
