Stay Tuned!

On Thursday, June 6, the Okeanos Explorer returned to port in Davisville, RI, concluding the shakedown of our new 6000-meter ROV. The ship will be in port until June 11 when it will depart for the New England Seamounts Chain Exploration Mapping cruise. Watch live as the explorers reveal new details of these important features. Following the Seamounts cruise, the Northeast U.S. Canyons Expeditions will begin, from July 8-25 and July 31-August 17, exploring deepwater canyon and inter canyon areas as well as Mytilus seamount, in search of deep sea corals, landslides, seeps, and more. Stay tuned for more live exploration from the Okeanos Explorer!
