Who we are

THE BEGINNING OF OCEAN REVIVAL

The Ocean Revival team embarked on their journey back in 2018 with the daring mission of conquering the world’s most perilous ocean route: a groundbreaking 3,700-mile voyage from New York to London across the North Atlantic.

Following three successful expeditions, achieving numerous world-firsts amidst some of the toughest and most austere conditions on earth, Ocean Revival are now poised to revolutionise ocean rowing experiences for adventurers worldwide.

THE PACIFIC TEAM - 2024

Stephen McHugh, Will Scott, Matt Mason and Mike Donovan will take on the 2400 mile Mid-Pacific row to raise money for Oceana. Oceana supports marine conservation globally, focussing on the protection and rejuvenation of marine habitats that are vital to life on earth.

Stephen McHugh

Stephen, a long-term friend of Ocean Revival, provided logistical support for our North Atlantic row. When the opportunity arose for Stephen to row across the Mid-Pacific, he eagerly accepted. Stephen’s commitment and dedication to Ocean Revival’s mission are evident in his unwavering support and enthusiasm for oceanic adventure and conservation.

Matt Mason

This will mark Matt’s fourth ocean row, following his successful crossings of the Mid Atlantic, North Atlantic, and Arctic Ocean. With each journey completed independently and without support, Matt brings a wealth of experience to the team. He eagerly anticipates sharing the beauty and challenges of the ocean with his teammates.
