NOAA "Wave Safe with Bruckner Chase"

image62

 "Mr. Chase's extensive experience addressing ocean safety in American Samoa specifically has directly advanced the National Weather Service's recent education and outreach efforts in the Pacific Islands.  His familiarity with different coastal communities, such as those on American Samoa, is valuable to the National Weather Service in making decisions on how to approach different coastal audiences and focus beach and ocean safety messaging."  Allison Allen - Chief, Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch - NOAA NWS

Blue Mind to Blue Journeys

"I have listened to Bruckner Chase speak many times — as an audience member, have shared the stage with him, and conversed one-on-one with him in the water — diving into many deep, useful ideas. Every time it’s inspiring, uplifting, fascinating and I’m left a better person. If you have the opportunity to learn from this waterman’s vast experience, practical insights, and epic stories, take it. Whether it’s near, on or under water, over a coffee, or in an auditorium Bruckner will leave you inspired to change the world.”  Dr. Wallace J Nichols, BLUE MIND

Beyond Start and Finish Lines

"In all my years, I have yet to meet a more passionate, persuasive and enthusiastic advocate for the ocean than Bruckner Chase.  Bruckner's remarkable journey as an ultra open-water swimmer, paired with an almost mystical appreciation for the sea that can only come from countless hours in and on it, makes his stories totally engaging and memorable." Hank Armstrong, Former VP Communications, Monterey Bay Aquarium
