Odyssey is driven by a passion for exploration

Odyssey Marine Exploration's business plan was developed based on these basic beliefs:

  • There are billions of dollars in valuable and priceless items lying on the ocean floor;
  • The technology exists to find and recover these items, which include artifacts, treasure, cargo and naturally-occurring mineral deposits;
  • Good business and sound scientific practice can co-exist and thrive together;
  • The treasures and knowledge recovered from the deep should be shared with the world.

From the start, Odyssey's business plan envisioned the discovery of valuable deep-ocean sites made possible by the fusion of best-in-class team, tools and technology.

The most qualified and brightest researchers, technicians, archaeologists and scientists from all corners of the globe have come together in the Odyssey team, and we continue to attract the best minds in this emerging industry. Odyssey is on a mission to explore the world's deep ocean and our team of deep-ocean professionals is driven by a passion for exploration.

Odyssey's suite of state-of-the-art technology includes side-scan and multibeam sonar, magnetometer, sub-bottom imaging, Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), and other advanced technologies to locate and recover valuables at depths previously unreachable in an economically feasible manner.

Although we depend on technologies that have been developed at great expense in other fields, primarily the military, oil and telecommunications industries, we use our unique expertise to modify and customize these technologies specifically to locate shipwrecks and mineral deposits and to conduct resource assessments, archaeological excavations, and cargo recovery thousands of feet deep.
