Céline Cousteau

Expedition Member, Ocean Futures Society

Whether Céline is free diving, hiking through the Andes or swimming with South Pacific sharks, the daughter of ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau and granddaughter of legendary Jacques-Yves Cousteau is an adventurer in her own right.

With her own film production company and foundation, Céline focuses on the human story behind environmental issues and provides support to the issues she covers, working with organizations like Amazon Promise. She is also an ambassador for environmental products like La Prairie’s advanced marine biology line and her work is supported by corporations like Rockport.

With a master’s degree in international and intercultural management from the School for International Training in Vermont, Céline served as regional coordinator for Africa and the Middle East for the Earth Council Alliance. She also led excursions as regional director for Butterfield & Robinson, an adventure travel company. She first joined her father during The Gray Whale Obstacle Course and has been working on documentaries around the world ever since. As field producer, diver and logistics coordinator for Return to the Amazon, she led a team into multiple, hard to access areas, including glaciers in the Andes and rarely seen protected areas in Brazil. She also negotiated access to an indigenous conference never before filmed.
