  • 11

    Dolphins! They never fail to bring a smile to my face when seeing them frolicking! Plus they are “pod” creatures, very “family” oriented! 💗

  • 12

    Whales for sure. They’re so intelligent and graceful. Such beautiful creatures.

  • 13
    Linda F says:

    I love dolphins. They are so intelligent and curious. They seem to come out of nowhere to swim in the bow waves of our boat. They look up at you and seem to really love it when you talk to them and engage with them. They even love to talk to our dogs. They are just so playful and beautiful.

  • 14
    Kelly W. says:

    My favorite creature from the ocean is the sand dollar! I love collecting the shells on vacation and even have a set of earrings and a necklace made from real ones! I think this is one of Papertrey Ink’s best summer releases yet!!

  • 15
    Lori Lehanne says:

    Too hard to pick just one…. I’ll never forget snorkeling in Hawaii 20 years ago and being immersed in sea life… the beautiful coral, the dance of plants in the water and hundreds of different schools of fish all in brilliant colors.

  • 16
    stampinggrandma says:

    Fabulous release! Love dolphins!!

  • 17
    Diane Anthony says:

  • 19

  • 20

  • 21
    Jessica Monte says:

    my favorite sea creature are the octopus. So many different colors are so beautiful so elegant So Graceful. I just think they’re a lot of fun. This release has been so amazing I’m so excited over the sea creatures and the coral I have been looking and looking and looking for stamps and dies that are coral.

  • 22
    Debbie Selby says:

    This is a great release and I like the look book. It is nice to get a complete list of images that I can enlarge and study, all in one place.

  • 23
    Shawn Wenrich says:

    My favorite ocean creature is the sea horse. It’s so sweet and just adorable!

  • 24
    Becky Green says:

    I like Star Fish & Sea Horses! They just seem like FANTASTICAL, WHIMSICAL storybook creatures! Your imagination could have fun with them! 😉 (I also LOOOOVE SHELLS!) 😉

  • 25
    Jan Metcalf says:

    Corals and shells! I can spend an entire day looking for pretty sea shells!

  • 26
    Donna Phelan says:

    Well, it used to be Starfish, I have them everywhere, thankfully we live on Cape Cod, so it’s not weird lol……but since we have had a grand daughter I am leaning more towards Mermaids…..sooo Magical and sweet, just like our dear Penny!

  • 27
    Deb Wagner says:

    Anything in the sea is amazingly graceful, calm and so peaceful. I enjoy seeing fish swim through the waving seaweed with all its layers of color, depth and textures. Very inspirational for creating cards from the new set.

  • 28
    Lisa Ann M says:

    My fav ocean creature may be a little bit unusual, but I love the Angler fish,,,they are faciating!

  • 29
    Pat says:

    My favorite is the octopus because it reminds me that we must all extend our reach to others.

  • 30
    Amanda says:

    I think whales. I have always found them a little fascinating. We were able to see them (or parts of them) on a whale watching tour and it just made them more interesting. I can’t even figure out the right words to describe my fascination. I just think if they were people I’d want to be friends with them.

  • 31
    Linda R says:

    Dolphins are a definite favorite. Love to watch them play. They seem so intelligent.

  • 32
    Amy K says:

    It’s hard to pick one. I guess it would have to be whales. They are so large and yet so graceful.

  • 33

    I have lots of favorites, but the top would be the seahorse (today!). They appear so delicate and ethereal!

  • 34
    Stephanie Clapper says:

    I live on the Florida coast so I love everything about the ocean. The conch is my favorite because I can hear the sound of the Ocean anytime, by simply placing it to my ear. 🙂

  • 35

    Turtles are my favorite. They are definitely unique amongst an ocean full of fish (as are sea horses), but turtles being born outside of the sea first are what’s so amazing about them. Then those sweet little things know exactly what they need to do the moment they emerge from the sand.

  • 36
    Isabel Z says:

    Dolphins because they are so cute.

  • 37
    Tosha says:

    I’m with Lori, too hard to pick. All the creatures and plants make up the beauty of the ocean with its colors and movement. Standing on the warm sand with the ocean breeze passing…now that’s a relaxing picture.
    Thanks for all the shares!

  • 38
    Christine Nixon says:

    I don’t actually have a favorite but I have always been fascinated by life on and around a coral reef – the colors, the way the plants move and flow in the water, the colorful and unique fish- I just think it is all so beautiful. My favorite beach plant is the sea oat, though. This release is just perfect!

  • 39
    Sherah says:

    Orcas. I know they are fearsome predators, but I love their striking black and white color, that they mate for life and appear so graceful.

  • 40
    Susan says:

    Living in the only New England state with no seacoast, I haven’t had that much exposure to the sea but I would have to say, just on a visceral level, I adore seahorses. Because, well … they are just so darn cute and seem to resemble some fantastic creature that only lives in science fiction but they are actual creatures that live on our planet. Makes you pause and admire all the amazing things that surround us everywhere.

  • 41
    Shawn M. says:

    Dolphins are my favorite. They are adorable and so much fun to watch playing in the ocean.

  • 42
    Terri Sandoval says:

    It would have to be the dolphin. They are beautiful, graceful, intelligent and scare away sharks!

  • 43
    Mary Ann Guarino says:

    Without a doubt, it’s the seahorse. They are so magical looking like unicorns of the sea!

  • 44
    Nancy Guse says:

    The sea turtles, because the last three years we have been swimming with them!!! They are SO beautiful!!

  • 45
    Cheryl B. says:

    My favorite is the seahorse. So unique and moves so gracefully. Doesn’t the Dad watch over the babies? I don’t have a beautiful seahorse in my stash but I will after tonight!!!

  • 46
    see mary stamp says:

    I would have to say whales, for no other reason than it’s a play on my maiden name, which is spelled Whelan but pronounced WHALE-N. I am hard-pressed to pass up any stamp set that has whales in it. Living in Illinois, I have yet to see a whale in person, but going on a whale watching excursion is on my bucket list.

  • 47
    Michele F says:

    I live along the shore of un-salted Lake Michigan, and really don’t know much about the ocean at all … BUT I am totally intrigued by Jellyfish! they are my favorite whenever I get to an aquarium that has them. Why? they are so mesmerizing, graceful, and seem like they couldn’t hurt a fly – but one only has to watch Finding Nemo to know differently! lol

  • 48
    Lori B says:

    Oh the magical sea horse is my favorite. I’ve always been fascinated by them.

  • 49
    Beth Stiver says:

    I like the mantas because they are so graceful in the water and fun to watch. They claim they are gentle also.

  • 50
    Cathy Y says:

    I love humpback whales. They weight 80,000 pounds, yet can leap out of the ocean. They are gentle giants!

  • 51
    Lynn W says:

    Gosh, such a hard question! There are so many ocean creatures to love and be inspired by. The diversity is mind-boggling. Just being at the ocean’s edge reminds me about how big our world is. I love the fish (all the beautiful colors), the dolphins and whales for the way they live with each other and move in their world, but I think the shells are my favorite. I have experienced so much joy and peace in my life just walking along the beach and collecting them, first as a little girl alongside my mom and throughout my life. That is why this release has been so special to me.

  • 52
    Tracie C. says:

    Dolphins are my favorite ocean creature because they have such grace about them and a real personality.

  • 53
    Annie Dill says:

    My favorite is the SEAHORSE

    I am partial to all horses,
    be they palominos,
    carousel steeds,
    rocking horses,

  • 54

    Marilyn G says:

    I grew up near the ocean and so did my parents. Love all the creatures especially the seahorses.

  • 56
    Diane says:

    Starfish are one of my favorites because they are so unique in how they move, live and eat. They come in a variety of bright colors, too. Thanks for sharing the inspiration! I loved browsing through the Look Book.

    Erin says:

    Turtles! Especially baby turtles, so cute.

  • 58

  • 59
    Linda Miller says:

    Definitely dolphins. We ‘swam’ with them in Roatan, Honduras!

  • 60
    Shelly says:

    My favorite is the sea anemone. It is so colorful and magical looking. It looks like something that could only exist through the magic of digital manipulation instead of something that really truly lives in the ocean.

  • 61

    Mine are seahorses and coral reef. This is an amazing release. Thank you for the chance to win a gift card!

  • 62
    Diana says:

    I love sea horses, because they are so pretty. Just adorable!

  • 63
    Bev Wilkinson says:

    Anemones are so intriguing because they are a strange mixture of animal and plant. Their colors and forms can be very beautiful.

  • 64
    Noelle says:

    Another dolphin fan here. I like to swim and always thought it would be fun to swim with a dolphin.

  • 65

  • 67
    Brandi R says:

    Sand Dollars. I’m not really sure why, but ever since I was little I have loved them. They intrigue me, I guess…just fascinating creatures.

  • 68
    Lisa S. says:

    I love all the beautiful corals. So sensitive to the environment and such a great protector of many other forms of sea life.

  • 69
    Jackie Parkins says:

    I love dolphins. They are intelligent, playful, and always seem to be enjoying their lives. I would love to be able to swim with them someday.

  • 70
    Lisa Dolson says:

    Whales are what come to mind. I know there is such a huge variety, but they are so majestic and intelligent.

  • 71
    Meg Crawford says:

    Seahorses are my favorite as I love horses too. They are so very different than other sea creatures. Starfish are a close second for me as they are also pretty cool.

  • 72
    BeverlyBL says:

    I love dolphins because of their friendly, helpful nature.

  • 73
    Annette Gordon says:

    Dolphins. As they interact with people and are so friendly! But really any and all of God’s amazing creatures are my favourite. They are all so amazing in there own way. (FYI – JUST LOVE all the sea themed items in this release!!!)

  • 74
    Victoria H says:

    I love watching sea life. I think sea horses are my favourite as they are so tiny and pretty.

  • 75
    JanetB says:

    Every comment has at least one favorite of mine, so picking just one would be impossible. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and I loved looking in the tide pools, with so many little creatures like sea urchins and starfish, muscles and limpets, a whole little underwater world to watch.

  • 76

    My favorite sea creature is the jelly fish. I love them because they are so ethereal and delicate. Very other worldly.

  • 77
    joyce mc says:

    Dolphins are my favorite. They are so playful and I love to hear them chatter.

  • 78
    Michele W says:

    Whales are my favorite. They are so big, graceful, and intelligent. Just magnificent creatures. Add to that the fact that they go with my last name. When I was born my dad designed my baby announcement. It included a stork carrying a whale. 🙂

  • 79
    Helen F. says:

    My favorite sea creature is the Star Fish with Sea Horses coming in a close second ~ mostly in the form of jewelry before moving to Florida, now I actually see dolphins, manatee, so many varieties of fish and alligators all around me!

  • 80
    Julie Garbisch says:

    I like all the beautiful colorful fish — there are so many interesting colors and shapes of fish out there that we are unaware of. Colors that only seem to exist underwater. It’s amazing to see.

  • 81
    Lisa Schenck says:

    My favorite ocean creature is the dolphin, just so cute!

  • 82
    JanetS says:

    Do mermaids count? Lol! They are magical! My second favorite would be sea horses! They just seem to float, rather than swim.

  • 83
    Betty B says:

    I love the ocean – dive or scuba whenever I get the opportunity. On a small scale my fav is any kind of box fish with their chubby little bodies. Whales for sure on the large scale the gentle giants of the sea.

  • 84
    Cindy says:

    I love sea shells most of all, and sand dollars are my favorite. One day I had a devotion by the seaside on God’s abundance. Then I walked the beach and found 20 sand dollars! A beautiful lesson.

  • 85
    Debbie P. says:

    The seahorse. How could you not love such a cute creature?

  • 86
    Cheryl says:

    I love coral. There are so many shapes, textures and colors. Amazing.

  • 87
    Vicki A says:

    Although I am amazed at the beauty of sea creatures, my favorite is the sea turtle. When we were visiting the big island of Hawaii, we saw numerous sea turtles while snorkeling. They were not concerned with people just, focused on finding food. So we could get close to them and watch them. They are gentle giants.

  • 88
    Jan says:

    Jellyfish fascinate me with their colors and graceful movements.

  • 89
    marcy says:

    Hard to pick one. The Whale is so beautiful in the wild. I will pick the whale for #1.

  • 90
    annheidel says:

    I don’t really have a favorite ocean creature or plant, but I enjoy hunting for shells on the rare occasion we are at a beach. I’m more of a mountain girl. I do love the seahorse and turtle images in the new Salt Air set! There are so many fascinating creatures in the ocean.

  • 91
    Becca Yahrling says:

    Dolphins are my favorite sea creature. They are so elegant and smart,
    not to mention adorable! AND we are fans of the Miami Dolphins so it
    just goes with the territory. lol

  • 92
    Lisa M says:

    I guess mine would be the whale, they’re so large and fascinating. Although I love the sea turtles in this stamp set so cute!

    Carrie K says:

    When I was a kid, I was enthralled by the sea enemy in the aquarium. They looked simply & magically peaceful to me.

  • 102
    Crystal O. Minkler says:

    My favorite sea creature is the sand dollar… I’ve always been fascinated by them! As a child, we would find them on the beach and look at the pretty designs… it was several years before I learned they were actually real creatures.

  • 103
    Sue in Grapevine says:

    I love otters! I think because they are like cats (which I adore) who can swim.

  • 104
    Diane Rusnack says:

    I love sea horses. Any species that has the males birthing the off-spring has gotten it right!

  • 105

    A whale shark is my favorite sea creature. It’s incredible how something so large can be so graceful.

  • 113
    Beverly Perdue says:

    My favorite sea creature is the dolphin! They are so cute and loveable. When I was growing up, I used to watch a show called “Flipper” about a dolphin. Just loved it! That may give away my age. I am a beach lover, and I am crazy about the coral, the reef builders, and the sea animals. I also love the new corner adorner with the vine and the little flowers! Another great release!

  • 114
    Amy Vitriani says:

    I love humpback whales! I love them because they are so very beautiful! Fantastic release this month ❤️

  • 116
    Nancy Penir says:

    To watch a whale in it’s habitat has to be a favorite. But any creature in the ocean becomes a favorite when seen close up! The closer the better! So happy you’ve included a sea theme this month! Has to be one of my favorite releases!

  • 117
    cathy R says:

    I have loved Seahorses since the first time I saw one at an aquarium store. They look magical.

  • 122
    Debbie B says:

    I loved scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef!
    Saw a shark, eek! I didn’t see me!
    Loved all the colorful fish and coral.

  • 123
    Kathy says:

    I love the jelly fish. They’re so amazing. I can spend so much time just watching them move. At The Academy Of Sciences they have a rotating colored light on the tank. It is great.

  • 124
    Dolly says:

    Aren’t they all cute! but I’d have to say my fave is the dolphin with it’s playfulness and ….it’s smarter than a lot of humans I know! LOL

  • 125
    Sharon Wentz says:

    I can’t say I have a favorite, but I have loved watching the whales “spouting” off when I spotted them from a distance along the coast of California! We go to Pismo Beach as often as we can, and usually see either whales or dolphins.

  • 126
    Kathy W says:

    Jellyfish are my favorite. They are very calming to watch and also very beautiful.

    Love jellyfish, or sea jellies. They are so graceful and elegant. The entire ocean release is just fantastic.


  • 130
    Leslie Scholes says:

    It really is hard to pick a favorite. I love all the vibrant colors of coral and fish and love the way the water moves the plant life and sea creatures. That being said…I think turtles are my favorite. How can you not love those sweet faces. Dolphins are a close second, intelligence and playfulness and their chatter…

  • 131
    Mimi r says:

  • 134
    Lisa says:

    My favorite sea animal is the sea turtle. I went to the Georgia coast two summers ago, and I was able to go to a sea turtle hospital. They rehab injured turtles and release them back into the wild. That was really cool to see!

  • 135
    Gwen Jackson says:

    I love the dolphins. They are playful.

  • 136
    MaryAnn N. says:

    🐬🐬🐬dolphins are my favourite. So playful and cute.

    Love this release.

  • 137
    christal mclean says:

    Having just returned from Hawaii, it was so fascinating to snorkel and observe the huge variety of ocean life. To pick one is very difficult but I would have to say at this point that I would pick the Parrot Fish. Its beautiful rainbow hues and to hear it crunching coral was so interesting and I would hover around them for long periods of time to enjoy them. Can’t wait for this release; it’s one of the best yet!

  • 138
    Cindy H. says:

    The tiny seahorse is definitely a big favorite. I love that they come in various beautiful colors and I’m intrigued that the male has a brooding pouch in which the eggs are fertilized and incubated. They are just so darn cute – love ’em 🙂

  • 139
    JoAnn H says:

    Dolphins are the best , so graceful strong and intelligent

  • 140

    Salmon. I live in BC Canada, right by the river where the Sockeye Salmon spawn. They are amazing! Every 4 years they come back to the same river bed where they hatched. Only a few make it back compared to how many left, struggling the long trip to the ocean, life in the ocean, then the hard struggle back up stream to mate. Incredible!

    Sharri Niehus Reeves says:

    Coral is my favorite. The reefs are so beautiful and intricate, the colors are amazing and they are teeming with aquatic life.

  • 144

    Honestly, this may be the first time that I purchase the whole release, or at least close to it. From the beginning of my stamping journey, I have been drawn to your innovation, products, and beautiful designs. I love receiving the email with Inspiration Downloads of sketches and color palettes. I learned more about designing a card using these tools than anything else. When I’m at a loss that’s my “go-to.” I love the new Look Book feature and believe it will be a great success for the company and for we the customer. The June release looks fabulous. The one thing that I would like to see is the use of Shape Shifters in a Make It Monday video. There may be one and I just haven’t seen it.

    All the sea life is so colorful and amazing, that it is hard to pick just one. I guess I would have to pick the sea turtles.

  • 169
    Jo Ann Mooney says:

    As so many others chose, the dolphins are my favorite sea creature. I love seeing them go up & down in the water as they swim. They also say where you see the dolphins, no sharks are around. I think they are beautiful!

  • 172
    Kathy Mc says:

    The beauty, texture and colorful coral has to be my favorite even though I thoroughly enjoyed watching whales breach near our dinghy on the Oregon Coast. Hard to believe humpbacks so big can put on quite the show!

  • 174

  • 175
    rachel w says:

    I love starfish. They are the one thing I see that makes me immediately think of the beach. That, and the adorable sand piper birds that run back and forth to avoid the incoming waves.

  • 185
    Jill A says:

    I think the sea horse is a fascinating creature. I have always loved to watch them. They mate for life and best of all the male sea horse gives birth of the babies.

  • 186
    Tina B. says:

    I love dolphins! Our family has the opportunity to visit Florida’s gulf coast every summer with our young grandchildren. I always love to see the glee on their faces when the dolphins show up.

  • 187
    Kathi Adams says:

    SEA TURTLES. 9 months ago my kids’ father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He had a fracture in his spine due to this. He was fitted with a hard plastic shell we called his turtle shell. His name was CT so this evolved into his slogan #cturtle strong and “sea” turtles became our favorite creature. The sea turtle’s endurance and resilience define this man. In April we all took a last family vacation to Pawleys Island, SC where sea turtles are abundant (but the only ones we saw were in shops). We all now collect anything sea turtle as a reminder of this awesome man who lost his battle one month ago today. To say I’m thrilled with Betsy’s new set is an understatement!

  • 188
    Vera Yates says:

    I have to say my favorite is whales. They’re so majestic and such amazing creature. I feel certain tranquility & awe whenever I look at them.

  • 189
    Keri H says:

    Not sure if this counts, but I love combing the beach for sharks teeth! Hubby and I used to compete to see who could find the biggest one. So far, I hold the trophy…I have one as big as the size of the palm of my hand. We miss living on/near the beaches of NC.

    My favorite sea creature is the sea horse. They are so majical. I love how they propel their bodies and wrap their tails around things. I think it is interesting how the males carry the babies.

  • 193

    Dolphins and only because I have never gotten to see a whale in the wild. Only at Sea World. I love the power and gentleness of Dolphins. And I LOVE their playfulness. We were at Sea World a couple of years ago and were talking to the trainer at a Dolphin pool. One got mad he was talking to us and splashed me! It was hysterical!!!

  • 194
    Lynda Marquez says:

    It is hard to choose a favorite, but my top favs are beluga whales, dolphins, and sea turtles! As a young woman I wanted to be an animal trainer ❤

    Great question. My answer would be a seahorse, because it kinda seems like a magical creature! Love them.

  • 199
    Sharon Jaeger says:

    Great question! Anything that lives beneath the ocean is so interesting because we can see them so rarely. I once saw an indigo blue star fish as big as a dinner plate while snorkeling. Amazing!

  • 200

    Betty Wright says:

    I love the big whales. They are just so majestic and regal. I prefer them to be free and not in captivity.

  • 212
    Michelle says:

    So hard to choose because I love so much about the ocean. I will say that otters are my very favorite. They are so darling and i love to watch them crack their shells on their chests with a rock. So cute!

  • 214
    karen b says:

    I love all the sea creatures, love to snorkel and see them up close, and have been lucky to snorkel in some fabulous locations! It is easier for me to say that my least favorite are eels–I am not fond of them!

    Fantastic release!

  • 233

    Love the Look Book!
    Whales are my favorite sea creature. On a trip down to Santa Barbara, we stopped along the beach area at Pismo and watched them! Such great timing!

    Dolphins have my heart!

  • 241
    Rachael B says:

  • 246
    Natalie Winterstein says:

    I love many plants and animals related to the ocean but when asked it’s hard not to say “I like turtles”! (If you are unfamiliar with this phenomenon please Google “I like turtles zombie and enjoy!) This has been a gorgeous release! I have enjoyed all of the design team projects!

  • 247
    Debs says:

  • 252

    The magic of sea horses enthralls me. Their look is almost prehistoric. Sea turtles and dolphins are neck and neck for 2nd place! They are such great swimmers!

  • 253
    Laura Gaechter says:

  • 256
    Sarosa says:

    A fun question! My immediate thought was the seahorse … they seem like creatures of myth or fantasy! I love how they change color to match their surroundings. But I’ve always wanted to see dolphins … so sweet and friendly. They even have a place in history, Pelorus Jack famously led ships through a dangerous strait for decades!

  • 257
    Stephanie Anfinson says:

    I would have to say the coral is my favorite because I find it fascinating. It is a living organism that is always building and growing and yet it has a skeletal system.

  • 258

    Dolphins and seals! Because they are soooo cute! Fantastic release!

  • 259
    Diane Oliver says:

    Although I love the water I don’t live near it… but I do love many creatures that reside there… turtles, dolphins, whales, to name a few… but I guess I have to go with King Crab…
    It’s one of my favorite meals! It’s a MUST stop at Jetty’s in Florida when I go on my annual Girls Trip.
    So sweet and delicious!

  • 260
    Helen says:

    Hard question…but I do like whales. There’s just something about them being so relational–so large yet so graceful. Thanks for asking and for this incredible new release.

    It is hard to make a choice but I do like dolphins. I love their playfulness and stories of their interactions with people.

  • 267
    Dianne S. says:

    My favorite is the humpback whale because I remember one nicknamed Humphrey when I was young that got lost in the Northern California delta on his migration up north. There was a big rescue operation for him and he eventually got back out to the Pacific again. There was a children’s book made of his rescue. I’ve also seen one up close in Seward Bay a few years ago. They are magnificent animals.

    Great release! The berries are my favorite!

  • 271
    Sheila W says:

    Boy there are a lot to choose from….the coral is so colorful, and love the dolphins too, but maybe I would go with all the really colorful smaller fish just for the reason that they are all so unique and pretty due to all their bright colors.

  • 272

    Fantastic release!!! I love sea turtles, my childhood vacation is to port dickson to see turtles lay eggs, happy times!

  • 273
    Joanne B says:

  • 274
    Lynda Swenson says:

    I am fascinated by octopus! They change colors, adapt their shape and are amazingly intelligent.

  • 275
    Dawn M. says:

    Hard question because I initially wanted to be a marine biologist, loving all ocean things. I do love sea horses and even had a salt water tank with sea horses for many years. They are so amazing to watch, the way they swim through the water and cling to things with their tails.

  • 276
    Mutzy Mia says:

    Mine would be the whales. They are so graceful despite their size. I have seen some beautiful photography catching whales in action above the water…especially one where it is going back under water and just the tail is above water…such majesty.

  • 277
    Susan T says:

    How does one pick a favorite. Each in its own way has something amazing to offer. Please think about that next time you get into the ocean to protect the reefs. Please use reef friendly sunscreen. I am embracing all ocean plants and creatures. Thanks for asking.

  • 278
    Cheryl Curtis says:

    How do you narrow it down? The whole eco system and the colors of the reefs are just incredible.

  • 283
    Natasha Trupp says:

    Sea Turtles- I’ve always liked turtles, and since I’ve been snorkeling a few times it’s so amazing to see them move in their natural habitat. Truly majestic creatures!

    What a hard question this month!!! I live in Maine very near the ocean. It is always a thrill to see a whale!!!! But the seals are mor common to see and I love watching them as the come up for air and surround your boat.

  • 293
    Colleen F says:

    I just love watching dolphins playing in the water when there is a pod of them…they are so cheerful and full of energy!

  • 294

    My favorite sea creature would be the sea urchin. To see them with their spikes is so cool and they come in beautiful colors like green and purple. The pure white of them when they are dried is gorgeous and they come in so many sizes!! The little tiny ones are so adorable–I have a whole vase full of dried ones that I collected off beaches in Puerto Rico.

    Hard to pick, but I’ll say sea otters. They are so cute, we saw lots of them floating by our boat when we were in Alaska last summer!

    Kate says:

    As with others who have commented, it is difficult to choose just one sea creature as I love watching all of them from the majestic whales to the entertaining dolphins to all of the plants-it is tough to say which is my favorite. However, at every aquarium that I have ever visited I seem to spend a lot of time watching the jellyfish. The seem to move so effortlessly and they are absolutely beautiful in both shape and design.

    I love sea turtles! I always get super excited when I see them when I’m out snorkeling 🙂

    I love dolphins! In my favorite fantasy series on Pern by Ann McCaffrey they even talk and save people in shipwrecks, and help the fishermen find fish.

  • 313

    Deborah Rosenow says:

    I am lucky enough to live in a beach town and as a child I would jump for joy when I would find a sand dollar! Something about finding a whole one was just amazing as a child!

  • 316
    Sharon Gullikson says:

    That is a very hard question to answer because I love SO many creatures, and for very different reasons. I think that I will have to say an octopus. They have funny personalities, are curious and intelligent, have cool suckers, and shoot out ink when scared. COOL.

  • 317
    Brian Poteraj says:

    I think that sea turtles are my favorite creature. We swam with them in Hawaii, and I really enjoyed them.

  • 318
    Sarah T. says:

    Seahorses – when my boy was little he used to swim upright, just like a seahorse, so that’s what we used to call him. 15 years later, as part of a marine biology project he pulled a seahorse out of Long Island sound (and put it right back in again). We were all so amazed to discover they’re native (albeit rare) in the waters here.

  • 319
    Reva says:

    Have never given thought to ocean creatures–but I like coral–so many different shapes and it provides hiding spaces for other ocean creatures.

    Fish! I think I like them so much because my granddaughter is fascinated with them, there are so many varieties, and their coloring is often so varied.

    Sea Turtles….they have managed to survive in spite of humans…and because
    of humans…. that have taken time to protect them…

    They are graceful in the water and move at a slow even pace…complementing
    their size.

    Thank goodness many continue to be around.

    Seahorses because they carry the babies!!! Lol

    Karen Maccoy says:

    Has to be starfish – well they’re stars and fish so how can you not love them!!

  • 333
    Annette says:

    Seahorses and octopusses. Seahorses are cute little creatures and I’m always amazed by the fluid movements of octopusses. I’ve also read that they are very intelligent.

  • 334
    Shelley G says:

    To be fair, you didn’t specify if it had to be a real creature! So, I am choosing mermaid! I’m an avid vintage collector and mermaids are super hot right now!

  • 335
    Donna Oates says:

    The starfish is my favorite. I think it’s because of the story of the grandfather and his grandson walking along the beach. The little boy was throwing starfish washed up on the shore back in. When asked the little boy said that it matters to the ones he’d thrown back into the water. Sand dollars run a close second.

  • 336
    Becs Attwood says:

    So many gorgeous projects this month. My favorite sea creature is the blue whale – they are so graceful & gentle despite their massive size.

  • 337
    Ang says:

    It is hard to pick one animal or plant when they are all cool in their own way. Whales and porpoises are admirable for their grace and intelligence. Salmon are beautiful and strong with the drive to make it back up the rivers to spawn. Sea otters are cute and playful. I admire them all.

  • 338
    Rebekah says:

    Loons! They are absolutely amazing- they can fly & then dive deep into the ocean to fish. They might not be the cutest ocean creature- but they are one of the coolest!

    Marie Mielke says:

    I love the dolphins. They always seem to be having fun and I love to hear their sounds.

  • 343
    Cacia says:

    My favorite ocean creature is the jellyfish—I love the way they look, transparent and ethereal. Luminescent ones are particularly beautiful. I’d hate to meet one in person, though!

  • 344
    Colleen Howell says:

    It would be a dolphin because they are very pretty, but also because they are known to be smart and protectors of other animals and humans in the ocean.

  • 345
    Deb Hudson says:

    I used to love sea horses. Because I love horses and their name was a horse. If it is favorite for food I love salmon.
    But I am fascinated by whales: their intelligence manner of communicating and as with orcas their cooperative hunting techniques.

  • 346
    Rema DeLeeuw says:

    I never thought about it but if I had to pick I do love dolphins. They are so huge yet so friendly and gentle. I even had an opportunity to swim with them while vacationing in Cancun many years ago. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

  • 347
    Amy McCue says:

    Seahorse because they are so delicate and tiny and come in all different colors!

  • 350
    Iris Shubert says:

    Whales and dolphins, I wonder if whales think dolphins are just silly, playful things and if dolphins think whales are wise, old ,very quiet and serious. All of God’s creatures are just amazing. I love all of the images you designed to represent them. Great job PTI

  • 351
    Janet Mack says:

    I love sand dollars. every year we go see our friends at the beach and at love tide we go out to a sand bar and dig down for them. They are huge.

  • 352
    Chris Cox says:

    My favorite ocean animal is the manatee. They seem so peaceful. They swim a little, they eat, they sleep. My college roommate used to work at a zoo, and she worked with manatees. They are very docile.

  • 353
    Julia Aston says:

    I think a Manatee is my favorite sea animal – they are just so lumpy and sweet! Followed by dolphins and whales – seahorses – star fish – sand dollars – isn’t it wonderful that we have so many wonderful things living in the oceans to love! I love Betsy’s new Salt Air Fauna set!

  • 354
    Julie says:

    Sea otters. They dive down, grab a shellfish and a rock, swim to the surface and proceed to crack the mollusk open with the rock and snack while floating on their back (with food on tummy). Plus they are just so playful and fun to watch.

  • 355
    Joan says:

    I love sand dollars but wavy seaweeds are also peaceful

  • 357
    Sandy C. says:

    Well, this is an easy one for me. Seahorses of course! I am a horse person, having owned horses most of my life. Anything to do with horses, or in this case, with horse in it’s name, has a tug on my heart.

    F. Andre says:

    My favourite is the nudibranch. They are so unique and unusual, and are usually very colourful.

    Tough question! I recently got my scuba certification. On the few dives I have made in the ocean (so far!), the huge variety of sea creatures was an amazing sight to see. It is a fascinating world – I can’t possibly pick a favorite!

  • 369
    Kim Badelt says:

    Just one? Ok I’ll go with humpback whales as I have the pleasure of seeng them cruise up and down our coast line each year. I love to see that plume of water and the occasional spectacular breach!

    There is nothing so awe inspiring as seeing a majestic whale breech. The absolute spectacle of it is truly spiritual.

  • 373
    Mary Mil says:

    Loved scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, Austalia and seeing the coral.

  • 374
    María Alba Negrón says:

    I am not too much of a beach goer, although we in Puerto Rico have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! But there is a tortoise that comes every year and places her eggs on the sand and is protected by our laws so much so that people arrive early at a certain hour to see them leave the eggs and make their way to the sea but they do so while protecting them also! It is such a beautiful spectacle!

  • 375

    Sea horses, I just love their shape and unusual characteristics. Thanks!

  • 376

  • 382
    Jill S says:

    For me, it’s Sea Lions. I love them because I am reminded of my first-born and how he loved watching them at the Mystic Aquarium when he was younger. Can’t tell you how many times we saw the show by the time he turned 3 and we moved to Georgia. When we moved back to Connecticut and he was a High School Sophomore, we went to see them again. Good times.

    Algae. It is responsible for most of the photosynthesis on earth, thereby producing a huge amount of our oxygen. And, I don’t like the ocean. At all. So, I’m going with algae. 🙂

  • 392

    I hadn’t really thought about it before, living in a land-locked state, but after seeing this release I’d have to say the sea horse. They just look so delicate.

  • 393

  • 397
    Nancy M says:

    This is a difficult question to answer. Guess it would have to be all the sea creatures who left their shells on the beach for us to collect as children.

  • 398

  • 401
    Melissa S. says:

    I think sea urchins are pretty amazing because of their shape and colors, and when we caught one at the beach it would crawl up the side of our bucket.

  • 402

  • 409
    Suzan Fohringer says:

    Oh my….there are too many to pick from! I guess it would have to be the sea turtles. Vacationed at North Carolina’s Ocean Isle for many years and got to see them coming out of the nest and trying valiantly to get to the water. We would be out on the sand at midnight if there were some ready to move. Everyone protects them and tries to help them make it. Yes…that is my favorite…they have to fight to live.

    I think otters are adorable.

    I love the Flying fish on the way to Catalina Island in Ca, oh how many time I saw them on the way….when I was a young girl of 18, I went on the big white boat and it looked like they flew from under the boat. This point in my life I want to find a complete whole / non broken sand dollar. So it would be between the two….sorry I am very undeceive 😬
