I read they have a pretty fast rejection time and a somewhat long acceptance time. I suppose that means if you don't hear back from them might be in luck!
I remember the site used to have deadlines for it's quarterly issues (did I mention it was a quarterly zine?) - but those deadlines aren't there anymore. I suppose somebody realized that if they were doing all ocean, all the time...then maybe posting deadlines was kinda pointless ;)
The site itself is full of info. There are samples from the current and past issue as well as some gorgeous photography work. You can use those to get a feel for what it is they're looking for. They also suggest you purchase an issue or subscription to get a full understanding. can defintely go "like" them on Facebook:

When I try to visit this site I get a blank page. When I search on the URL literally, it goes to an announcement that the website (URL) is for sale. Looks like it's gone.
