NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is back in port

NOAA Research Vessel Samoa

Pure Ocean invited on board Okeanos Explorer

The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is back in port and they very kindly invited us down to have a look onboard. Despite their tight schedule they answered a plethora of questions as Bruno drooled over their deep sea ROV which dives down to over 6000m.

They are an amazingly dedicated crew that receive very little attention and even less credit yet the work they do is at the forefront of helping us learn and discover what is happening beneath the waves.

Thanks again to the crew though we are still trying to work out a way to sneak back on and stow away!
