WHY COME ALONG WITH US
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) estimates that there are more than three million shipwrecks worldwide – an amazing cornucopia of cultural goods transported by mankind for more than 3,000 years.
Until fairly recently, most of these astounding treasures have been virtually inaccessible to archaeological excavation due to their extreme depth, often thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface. And yet, our expeditions have confirmed that many of these wreck sites are either completely disintegrated or are steadily deteriorating due to destruction by both human and natural intervention. In effect, the world’s quest to capture the invaluable knowledge these shipwrecks hold is a race against time.
We employ proprietary technology including Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), and other advanced science and technology to locate shipwrecks at depths previously unreachable in an economically feasible manner.
Although we depend on technologies that have been developed at great expense in other fields, primarily the military, oil and telecommunications industries, we use our unique expertise to modify and customize these technologies specifically to locate shipwrecks that will enable archaeological excavations thousands of feet deep.
Our projects go through several phases beginning with research and development and search operations. Throughout every phase, our team is passionate about our mission to share the ocean’s treasures with the world. Through television, the internet, books and other publications, educational programs, as well as a Virtual Museum accessible to anyone.
We are committed to sharing the thrill and adventure of deep-ocean exploration as well as the knowledge and historical treasure that each shipwreck represents. Through streaming video, the internet, and other publications, there is an opportunity for everyone interested in shipwrecks to participate in our fascinating discoveries.
Future explorations will provide many no-cost opportunities for the public to experience and benefit from our worldwide research and discoveries. We share the excitement of our deep-sea adventures and the priceless treasures and knowledge we discover through a variety of channels.
