Dreaming of the salt air and the ocean? Take a virtual dive with sea lions in Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary! If you're on a desktop, click and drag to experience the kelp forest in 360 degrees, or pair your phone with your virtual reality headset. For the best viewing experience, watch the video in high-definition: click the gear symbol in the lower right corner, then select any of the HD options that pop up when you click "Quality."
To experience more 360-degree images of your national marine sanctuaries, visit sanctuaries.noaa.gov/vr. And stay tuned here: later this spring we'll be launching even more virtual reality videos of these special places!
