Oceans, Forever


SeaOrbiter is a futuristic, semi-submersible aquatic research vessel designed by “sea architect” Jacques Rougerie. With construction set to begin this spring, the SeaOrbiter will feature 12 separate decks, containing a mixture of pressurized and un-pressurized labs and living quarters. With a goal to be actively exploring 24/7, the crew of 18 will definitely be living with the currents in this, the first “nomadic international oceanic station.”
