Captain Jacques Cousteau left his mark forever on the planet and the oceans. When Cousteau and his team embarked aboard Calypso to explore the world, no one yet knew about the effects of pollution, over-exploitation of resources and coastal development. 

However, it wasn’t enough to explore, he wanted to share what he was doing and why it was so important. He fundamentally changed the way a generation related to the sea and set the stage for how scientists and explorers relate to an audience.


The Captain’s adventures on Calypso’s adventures drew the public’s attention to the potentially disastrous environmental consequences of human negligence. Cousteau, through his life and his work, was a major player in the environmental movement

An indispensable part of the Cousteau identity was of course, his famous Red Hat. As the first hero of the environnement, it was not with a cape but a cap that Captain Cousteau went about changing the world for present and future generations

“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”

Please note that we only have very limited numbers of red caps in stock.
