Our expeditions combine science, design, and frontier technologies to experience, understand, and share beautiful and threatened ocean environments, especially coral reefs. Participants are invited to join the Hydrous community of scientists, educators, tech professionals, divers, and creative minds to learn together, share adventures, and find solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Since 2014, the Hydrous has explored marine ecosystems in California, Hawaii, Easter Island, Palau, Japan, Guam, Indonesia, and the Maldives (flagship destination). 

Joining expeditions supports the Hydrous mission of ocean education and conservation.

Banco Chinchorro, Mexico

Sept. 29th - Oct. 7th, 2018

Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve is an atoll reef lying off the southeast coast Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Belize. The atoll is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and has been a protected national park since 1996. Banco's remote offshore location has helped maintain excellent coral and fish populations.  Our expedition will be surveying portions of the reef and capturing 3D coral models. Join us in exploring a part of the Mesoamerican Reef few divers ever get to visit.
