The Community Submersibles Project is fundamentally about making exploration on submersibles accessible. These incredible machines have traditionally only been available to researchers and wealthy private owners, but they offer a rare and wondrous glimpse into the unknown that we believe everyone should get to experience.
We currently own two submersibles!
Fangtooth: a 2-person 11' long bright yellow manned submersible, capable of dives to 30'. We are retrofitting Fangtooth to be able to dive to 150'.
Noctiluca: a 2-person 32' long manned diesel-electric submersible with a 500 mile range and capable of dives to 300'. We will be repairing and retrofitting a number of different system components. She may be able to dive up to 600' in the future!
