Ingo Heidbrink has claimed that maritime history is an unpopular sub-discipline, with a serious 'branding issue' and challenged maritime historians to 'close the blue hole'. This article attempts to respond to his challenge by highlighting the interdisciplinary potential and other strengths of maritime history. It also provides an Australian perspective on the 'blue hole'.
