Live: Surveying Deep Sea Corals, Sponges and Fish Habitat

Design. Build. Explore.

Engineers, videographers, data specialists, and educators. We are the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. Our team designs, builds, and operates robotic platforms that explore the most extreme underwater environments on the planet—from the deep ocean to the largest lakes. We share our discoveries with the public through our education and outreach activities.

We are in port in San Francisco until October 22nd. Tune in again on the 23rd for the start of Leg 2 of the #expresscruise!
