Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration

Design. Build. Explore.

Coming in May 2022! Check out the upcoming Valor in the Atlantic expedition. All wrecks all the time!

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
