OceanGate Expeditions, a company organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas is a company of undersea explorers, scientists, and filmmakers who are dedicated to manned exploration of the underwater world. Not satisfied with scratching the surface of the ocean near the shoreline, OceanGate Expeditions uses manned submersibles to create expeditions at depths far deeper than can be reached with SCUBA.
Mission Specialists are important and valuable members of the crew, and contribute to the overall success of the expedition. Complex expeditions like ours require a team effort, and your support as a Mission Specialist is key.
As a Mission Specialist, you will not just be “along for the ride.” You will be trained in any skill that you want to learn or that you already have an aptitude for – with coaching from our team and world-renowned experts provided throughout your mission.
Roles may vary depending on the expedition. See the lists below for typical roles on each mission.
The inside of the submersible is well-lit and comfortable for five people. The internal pressure remains constant – it’s the same pressure we experience at sea level, so you will not need to go through a decompression process at the end of the dive. The air inside the sub gets recycled in a similar way to the air inside a spacecraft.
The internal temperature is typically only a few degrees warmer than the outside water temperature, so we recommend wearing layers on your dive.
