FEARLESS
SCIENCE

Our research focus is marine exploration and biological discovery in the most inaccessible corners of the sea. We partner with scientists eager to push the boundaries of research in their field—be it locating new species or studying never-before-seen biological phenomena—and we give them the tools they need to get the job done.

NEXT-GEN
TECH

Everything we do is made possible by our state-of-the-art research vessel, the M/V Alucia. Equipped with two manned subs that can take researchers 1,000 meters deep, a fleet of support ships, an onboard helicopter, and fully equipped science labs, the Alucia can bring back discoveries and stories no one has ever seen before.

BRING BACK

We’re creating a deep and personal connection with the ocean
for millions of people across platforms worldwide.

COMPELLING STORYTELLING

Using advanced underwater filmmaking tools, we document each moment of discovery—and then transform those moments into compelling stories we share with the world. From TV series to giant screen films, online and off, we reach our audiences wherever they are, to inspire in them the same love of the oceans that inspires us.

IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES

The waters we explore are hardly static and neither is our approach to helping people experience the thrill of exploration and discovery. Through museum exhibits, virtual reality, gaming technology and more, we recreate the visceral experience of wonder that comes from venturing beneath the surface of the sea.
