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, Solomon Islands, Belize, and the Maldives (flagship destination).
Joining expeditions supports the Hydrous mission of ocean education and conservation.
