12 Ocean Movies to Stream While Stuck at Home

Self-isolating during the coronavirus outbreak? Just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the beauty — and thrill — of the underwater world. During these hard times or any natural disaster, opt for some “sofa diving” and watch an ocean-inspired film that’s currently available on your favorite streaming services:

1. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – Disney+

This Academy Award-winning 1954 film tells the tale of shipwreck survivors held captive aboard the Nautilus, a deep-sea exploration vessel commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo.

2. Jaws – Hulu

Shark phobia struck the nation when Jaws was released in the summer of 1975. Although the ‘70s visual effects are a tad less scary in the modern world of CGI, this classic tale of man versus nature still captivates audiences today.

3. Chasing Coral – Netflix

Watch as a team of divers, filmmakers and scientists race around the world to record and discover the cause of reef decline during a mass coral bleaching event.

4. Finding Nemo – Disney+

When disaster strikes, remember the mantra “just keep swimming.” An animated favorite for the whole family, Finding Nemo features a quirky cast of marine creatures who help clownfish Marlin find his son, Nemo.

5. Finding Dory – Disney+

In this epic sequel, the gang from Finding Nemo helps lovable, memory-challenged Dory reconnect with her own parents years after leaving home.

6. Mission Blue – Netflix

Explore the sea-centric life and work of “Her Deepness” Sylvia Earle — oceanographer, environmentalist and de facto mother of diving.

7. Into the Blue – Amazon Prime

Take in all the beauty of the Bahamas in this thriller that follows treasure-hunting divers who discover a sunken drug-smuggling plane.

8. Aquaman – HBO Go or Hulu

Superhero fanatics, escape to the underwater city of Atlantis and witness Aquaman’s quest to retrieve the Trident of Atlan and secure his reign as “protector of the deep.”

9. Sharkwater Extinction – Amazon Prime

In his unforgettable third documentary, late diver and filmmaker Rob Stewart exposes the illegal shark finning industry.

10. The Abyss – HBO Go or Hulu

James Cameron’s 1989 sci-fi drama follows a team of civilian divers who encounter otherworldly creatures on a deep-sea mission to find a missing military submarine.

11. A Plastic Ocean – Netflix

Uncover the impacts of plastic on the marine world in this informative and eye-opening documentary.

12. Sharknado – Amazon Prime

Of course, no list of ocean-related films would be complete without this cinematic cult phenomenon featuring — you guessed it — tornadoes full of man-eating sharks.
