a new era of


deep sea experiences for citizen SCIENTISTS 


titanic survey expedition

Beginning in 2021, a team of explorers will dive 3,800 meters below the surface of the North Atlantic to the wreck site of the RMS Titanic. This historic expedition will open the opportunity for citizen scientists to participate as active members of the team. Considered Mission Specialists, these individuals will help to achieve scientific goals and document the current condition of the historic wreck. Receiving hands-on training and continued instruction, this unique opportunity will connect explorers and amateur scientists to real scientific adventure.

Hudson canyon deep-sea discovery expedition

Only a handful of people have explored and directly observed one of the world's most biodiverse subsea hotspots. Beginning in September, the OceanGate Expeditions Team will seek to discover new life forms, long-lost shipwrecks, and a better understanding of the behavior of deep-diving whales and sharks. This unique experience just miles from New York is an opportunity for citizen scientists to contribute to the scientific understanding of the eastern coast of the United States.

Citizen Scientists, known as Mission Specialists, assist with unique research expeditions throughout the world. With a base level training and continuous instruction, Mission Specialists support each expedition by performing hands-on roles side by side with the expedition crew, scientists and experts.

Onboard the topside support ship, Mission Specialists help the expedition crew with communications, tracking, submersible maintenance and dive planning. They also support the scientific team through observation, data collection and cataloging archaeological and biological discoveries.

During each mission, dive crew will descend into the depths of the ocean to explore a completely foreign world. Mission Specialists assist pilots with navigation, communication and other subnautical tasks. Through the large viewport, Mission Specialists will observe and document marine life, or use integrated computer tablets to monitor exterior cameras which provide nearly a 180-degree view of the submersible surroundings.

Hydrothermal Vents

Far beyond where any light can penetrate hydrothermal vents are hosts to complex biological communities fueled by the chemicals dissolved in the vent fluids.


Over the years, war and bad weather have brought many unfortunate ships and planes to rest along the Croatian coast creating a unique underwater museum unlike anywhere in the world.
