With his dad, he produced films and television programs, including Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau. Cousteau currently is producing the television series Cousteau's Rediscovery of the World.

He also has been involved in many environmental projects, including heading the team that transformed a section of the ocean liner Queen Mary into California's Living Sea Museum.
