Jacques-Yves Cousteau: Visionary, Conservationist, Scientist, Inventor, Author, Filmmaker Extraordinaire

In a remarkable foresight of the importance of the world’s oceans, the International Swimming Hall of Fame inducted Jacques-Yves Cousteau as an Honor Contributor in its Class of 1967.

While Baby Boomers and others who came of age in the previous century may be well familiar with the famed French visionary, marine conservationist, scientist, and prolific filmmaker who studied the sea and all forms of life in water, the younger generations may not be so familiar with the 20th century Renaissance Man of the Ocean.

National Geographic Documentary Films’ Becoming Cousteau gives an inside look at the life of respected explorer, filmmaker and adventurer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, his iconic films and inventions, and the experiences that made him the 20th century’s most unique and renowned environmental voice.
