Design. Build. Explore.

New online! Check out our education modules for students and educators.

Coming in May! Valor in the Atlantic Expedition – all wrecks, all the time.

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 modules.

It’s a beautiful day for our first ROV dive of our Voyage to the Ridge 3 expedition! Join us with NOAA Ocean Exploration as we go down to about 1,900 meters at oceanexplorer.noaa.gov ... See MoreSee Less
