Our multi-year commitment to studying the wreck on our annual Titanic Expedition will give the scientific and archaeological communities new insight into the wreck’s deterioration and its deep-ocean environment.
We’re supporting a team of researchers at the University of Rhode Island document four historic submarines, including one Nazi Germany U-boat, to preserve this rich history for generations to come.
We will train you to actively participate in the oceanographic research affording you the rare opportunity to engage with a renowned research team seeking answers to the great mysteries of this biodiversity hotspot.
In September 2018, OceanGate Expeditions mobilized in Friday Harbor, WA to work with the OceanGate Foundation and SeaDoc Society in support of several research projects focused on understanding deep-dwelling red urchins, observing the rolling sand waves that make Pacific sand lance habitat and the long-term impacts of scientific trawling on the seafloor.
We captured sonar images of the iconic Andrea Doria shipwreck to establish an accurate and reliable baseline for scientists to study it before it disappears.
The primary objective of the expedition was to conduct extensive offshore testing of the company’s new Mobile Subsea Launch and Recovery System (MSLARS), to launch OceanGate’s manned submersible, Cyclops 1.
Working in partnership with the OceanGate Foundation and Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet, OceanGate dove in Elliott Bay with local musician and ocean advocate, Macklemore. Our objective was to find the elusive sixgill sharks that roam the deep waters in Puget Sound.
OceanGate and BlueView Technologies helped to produce the first high-resolution, 3D digital model of a perfectly preserved, 100-year-old steamboat, in June 2010.
The team discovered the location of a CIA diver lockout chamber used during the cold war, dove to 747 feet, and filmed and observed a variety of marine life.
