The idea of OceanMedix was kicked around for a couple of years by two friends.

Originally founded in 2006, OceanMedix website was launched to provide Prescription Medical Kits, Sterile Packs, Prescription Medical Products,First Aid, Safety, Emergency and Communication Equipment for the Coastal Cruiser and Ocean Voyager.
