The Ocean carries a lot of power, and many spells can be done on the Ocean. Here are some basics on doing Ocean Spells.
It will be important to go at around sunset or at night. During the day you may find more people on the beach as well as draw attention to yourself. Depending upon the size of your spell or ritual, that is something which you do not want to do. You may even think about choosing a night when it is cloudy or a bit cooler. Chances are not as many people will be out roaming the beaches. Basically what you want to do is be secluded as possible, but be sure that you're safe. Do not go alone!! In these times on Earth you never know, so it's always safer to bring a friend and let someone else know where you and your friend will be. This goes for people of all ages.
You will also want to check the tides before leaving your home. Traditionally spells of constructive nature, such as love, healing, money, psychic awareness, travel, courage, protection, etc., are performed when the tide is flowing from low to high. Spells which are aimed at destroying disease, bad habits, obsessions, and so on are better with the ebbing tide, which is high to low. But as for me and my own personal practices, I do not see why following rules such as those would completely hinder a spell. Sure, they will aid your spell. But if the only time you can be at the beach is around the wrong tide, do not worry. Do your spell and release your worries.
I also think its important to not bring too many items with you. Some witches will haul cauldrons, incense burners, knives, special cups, bottles of wine, food, napkins, books, recorders, cameras, cords, swords, herbs, stones, shells, and whatever else to the beach with them. I think you get the hint... Many times less is better. This is because being outside doing spells brings you closer to nature and the elements. The elements are around you, and ultimately that is all you need. It will also be best to wear something comfortable. You do not need to go out looking beautifully decked in full makeup or anything like that. Men will understand! Go as you are, natural is best!!
Before we get into any spells I also want to remind everyone that simple is best. You don't need a bunch of people dancing around a large fire near the roaring ocean or anything like that. If you do have a ritual already prepared, know what you want to say, know how you're going to do it, and keep it inspirational and flowing. Nature magic doesn't need a bunch of beautifully poetic chants and spells to recite. It should be natural and flow with ease. It is also best to respect the earth. No littering. Whatever you bring with you, take with you too!! Be sure to soak in the moment and enjoy it.

Ocean Magic Chant
Here between the land and sea,
Where powers reign,
I create my destiny
And all I would attain.
Ancient ones here my call
Grant the power that I have seen
Here between the land and sea
Take me from this mundane world
Connect me with the powerful light
Help me know your mystery
Let my magic live
Afterwards sit in mediation for as long as you want or feel necessary.
Connection & Healing Ocean Magic
Go to the beach when its not crowded. The more secluded the better. Take off your footwear, and push your feet into the sand. Feel the grains beneath your feet. Walk to the water, and feel its cool touch caressing your feet. Feel the water, and know that it is welcoming you into its watery realm. If possible lay down on the sand and use your senses to really feel, see, smell, and experience everything. Feel in tune with the world around you, and let your mind wander. If you want you can meditate or simply lay there taking in the moment. This is best done at night time, but it can be done during the day. Basically what you're doing is connecting your body with the earth, and since you're near the ocean and the wind is all around you as well as the fiery stars above you will be surrounded by all the elements. This is one of the best ways to feel connection and to experience healing. The elements will draw out all negativity from you.
Symbol Ocean Magic
Basically in this one you will be going up close to the waves where the sand is wet. This should be done safely, but fast. Take a piece of driftwood, stone, or shell and draw a symbol of your choice for whatever you want to manifest into your life. This could be a rune symbol, a heart for love, a dollar sign for money, etc. The possibilities in this are truly endless. You can even write out the word or phrase or even your name, After its done step back and watch as the Ocean comes up to take away your writings and drawings. This is the Ocean's way of taking your intention and unleashing its power into the Universe.
Sea Gems Stone, Driftwood, & Shell Ocean Magic
As you're walking the beach pay attention to any shells, driftwood, or stones that may catch your eye. If you see one that calls to you, pick it up and take it with you as a good luck charm. However, you can also go to the edge of the beach and pick a piece of wood, stone, or shell and hold it in your hands. Release all your energy and intention of whatever it is you want to manifest into that Sea Gem. After you are finished, throw it back into the Ocean and your spell or manifestation will be released and come into being.
I want to remind everyone that when doing spells please take into consideration the feelings of others. It is never advisable to cast a spell on someone who you don't have permission from. This will end up messing things up, and even if your spell does work... it will eventually do the opposite. Such as a love spell on someone you like. This is going against their free will, and even if the spell does make them attracted to you for a while... it will eventually fade and make things worse. Think about the wiccan law "ye harm none." Going against someone's free will is ultimately harming them. I know you will find many other witches online that say this is okay, but please do not trust them. So happy casting, and be sure your casting is done either on yourself or someone you have permission from. Never on anyone unsuspecting.
Remember the law of three. Whatever you give out, you get back times three!!
You hold the fate of your own Karma...
