Protecting Our Salty Wilderness

Why aren't our oceans getting the love and respect they deserve? How can we change it? I'm on a mission to inspire as many people as possible to love the big blue thing that's changed my life and the lives of many others. This space is for sharing stories and conversations about the environmental issues we're concerned about, the adventures we're living, and the thoughts we're pondering. 

What's life as a seasonal guide like? Here's a quick summary of 2017: 

This has been a wild year - I've spent 3 tourist seasons on 3 different islands, guiding on snorkel, whale watch, and dolphin swim tours. Maui, I love you. San Juan Island, you feel like home. Kaikoura - you've reinvigorated me. I've never been in so much saltwater, and it feels amazing!


Behind the Scenes of Salt & Snow

Lauren Fritz is a naturalist, writer, and photographer that tumbled headfirst into a passionate love affair with travel and island living after realizing just how intoxicating this salty and snowy world can be. She typically splits her year between Maui, Hawaii in the winter months and the San Juan Islands, Washington during the summer, but has recently fallen in love with the South Island of New Zealand and the beautiful little town of Kaikoura. On island, her time is spent teaching visitors about ocean conservation and marine life, but she also maintains a childlike sense of curiosity and wonder and enjoys living life as a permanent student - continuously learning about the ocean, the mountains, and the different cultures that she encounters in her explorations. This blog is an elaboration of her thoughts, musings, and meaningful experiences, with a focus on conservation and mindful living.
