The Future of Deep-Sea Exploration

A new era of deep ocean exploration

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

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.

  • Sonar and Laser Scan OperationConduct sonar and laser scans of the shipwrecks and sunken artifacts.
  • Photography and VideographyOperate on-board cameras to capture photos and videos of sea life, shipwrecks, artifacts and more.
  • Communications and TrackingAssist the pilot with sub-to-surface communications
  • Observation and DocumentationHelp identify artifacts from shipwrecks, conduct species counts and record the team's observations.
  • Submersible PreparationParticipate in servicing the submersible after dive operations.
  • Communications and TrackingAssist in Mission Control with ship-to-sub communications and monitoring the sub's position.
  • Dive Media ReviewReview images captured during the dive that human eyes may have never seen.
  • Dive PlanningAssist in operational dive planning.

What is it like to dive in the sub?

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.
