Legendary oceanographer, filmmaker and inventor Jacque Cousteau is best known for exploring the underwater world. Cousteau’s love for marine life and science made him an influential figure when it comes to conserving marine biodiversity. As one of the most bio-diverse lagoon ecosystems in the Northern Hemisphere, Martin County’s waterways would have undoubtedly captivated Cousteau. This part of Florida’s Treasure Coast has long been celebrated for its waterfront lifestyle, surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway, the Indian River, and the Atlantic Ocean.
