Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration

Design. Build. Explore.

New online! Check out our education modules for students and educators.

Engineers, videographers, data specialists, and educators. We are the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. Our team designs, builds, and operates robotic platforms that explore the most extreme underwater environments on the planet—from the deep ocean to the largest lakes. We share our discoveries with the public through our education modules.

Today on Earth Day, we here at GFOE celebrate the amazing wonders of our planet! Exploration is like a love letter to Earth and lets us make incredible discoveries like these spires in Yellowstone Lake. Keep exploring and treat every day like Earth Day! #EarthDay2021 #exploration

It’s impossible to celebrate Earth Day without celebrating the ocean, which covers more than 70% of our planet’s surface. So sit back, take a deep breath, & thank the ocean for making our planet what it is today.
#EarthDay #PlanetEarth #OneOceanOnePlanet

Thank you for posting! Have a great dive today.

Our team had an excellent dive on Castle Rock Seamount today! If you missed it, no need to worry! You can watch a replay of the dive on Stream 3 after the ROV’s are recovered (around 5:00 PM EDT).That's a wrap! Our dive on Castle Rock Seamount has come to an end. Tomorrow we'll be exploring a seamount within the Corner Rise seamount chain that is so unexplored, it doesn't even have a name. Same time, same place.
