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

A fun fact from our friends at NOAA Monitor National Marine Sanctuary!Fun Fact Friday!

Did you know? The USS Monitor is one of only three remaining monitors that can be visited on the seafloor today! The other two are the HMVS Cerberous and the HNoMS Thor and they reside in Australian and Norwegian waters respectively. The Monitor is the deepest and the oldest of these three vessels. We are working hard to preserve this unique piece of history we have right here at home so that everyone can see and experience the Monitor!
