The story of of Atlantis

Plato told the story of Atlantis around 360 B.C. The founders of Atlantis, he said, were half god and half human. Studies indicate that Atlanteans may have been the ancestors of dolphins. They created a utopian civilization and became a great naval power.

Their home was made up of concentric islands separated by wide moats and linked by a canal that penetrated to the center. The lush islands contained gold, silver, and other precious metals and supported an abundance of rare, exotic wildlife. There was a great capital city on the central island.

According to Egyptian texts, this island in the Atlantic was overwhelmed by water. The ten kings, including Thoth, traveled east to safety by boat. Stories tell of the founders of Egypt arriving from an island in the Atlantic around 11,870 years ago.

We believe in people responding to our “The Atlantis Call” retreats to prepare the grounds for a new Atlantis - a striving civilization aiming for a higher level of consciousness.

Community

Oceanic Ventures appeals to seekers who are determined to live their lives with a higher mission and thus believe in creating a better future for us all. Our community of “Atlanteans” includes entrepreneurs, artists, investors, monks, diplomats, business leaders and curious individuals from all sorts of backgrounds.

History

Oceanic Ventures has initially been founded by our founder Fabian-Carlos Guhl after having experienced the transformational power of water himself. The unique concept of combining water sports with body, mind and soul activities has been proven to combine fun and personal growth at the same time. Retreats take place in handpicked, raw and unpolluted places like Dahab in Sinai, Egypt.

Contributing to the Sanctuary of water and life

We donate 20% of our profits to charities.

We collaborate with local non-profit organizations. The organizations will be visited during the trip to get a first hand idea about their work - ranging from water cleanup to empowering local communities, even protecting the local marine life.

FABIAN

Captain Fabian

Fabian grew up in Berlin and learnt how to windsurf in the Baltic Sea from his father as a little boy. He worked with technology startups, the United Nations and organized trips to 16 African countries supporting entrepreneurs. In his thirties he entered a personal crisis resulting in burnout and depression.

He started listening to his inner wisdom and started volunteering in dolphin conservation in the Red Sea. He began to swim with wild dolphins every day and connected deeper to the sea. His dream is to assist people in exploring their inner world by going deep into the sea and having the best time of their life.

He spends his free time in the water doing free diving, windsurfing, kitesurfing and also enjoys the mindful community of Dahab that offers so much wealth.

After completing her studies in Actuarial Mathematics in 2019, she embarked on a journey to seek her own truth. She learned martial arts in China, became a skier in Turkey, a freediver in Egypt, and renovated a big house in America. She hiked great mountains, traversed long paths in wilderness, backpacked in dozens of countries all on her own. The magic of water has kept her in Dahab and the Red Sea is now what she can call her home. She decided to heed the Atlantis Call before continuing on her pursuit in Computer Science and Cryptography in the US.
