OCEAN NOVELS

The ocean has fascinated novelists throughout time. One only has to think about Robinson Crusoe stranded on an island to Moby Dick and the hunt for the great white whale to appreciate the intensity that the ocean has brought to the world’s great writers. This section of the portal will bring you the some of the best ocean novels of all time and many more! The list below is only to get us started. At some point we will conduct an online poll and see which novels you think belong in the top 20!

The novels listed on this page are not intended to be comprehensive. If you have suggestions for ocean novels that we should add to the list, please let us know by filling out the form at the bottom of this page!
