Global Expedition

Expedition Program's Goals:

  • Explore, and document critical environments around the globe with both submersibles and dive teams. 
  • Inspire action to protect these places.
  • Support scientific studies of aquatic environments. 

In 2014, we expanded Project Baseline with the GUE Global Expeditions, thanks to the generous support of GlobalSubDive, directed by GUE founding board member Robert Carmichael. From 2014-2016 their ship, the Baseline Explorer, equipped with two submersibles and able to support techical divers, was used throughout the Atlantic and Mediterranean to allow explorers and researchers to conduct operations to depths up to 400 feet.

The missions were to support surveys of coral reefs, documentation of historic shipwrecks, and other significant sites. By using submersibles, scientists, collaborators, and media personnel are able to visit deep locations and oversee scientific surveys and sample collections by our GUE divers.

In 2017, we continued to collaborate with researchers and similarly aligned entities to focus our exploration and documentation efforts world wide. Thanks to the private donation for time aboard the m/y Ad-Vantage, the Project Baseline team along with GUE NZ were able to document critical reefs around the islands of Fiji.
