The Community Submersibles Project is fundamentally about making submersibles exploration accessible to all. Traditionally, these incredible vessels have only been available to government researchers and wealthy private owners. We believe that everyone should get to experience the rare and wondrous glimpse they offer into our unknown.
We currently own two submersibles!
Noctiluca is 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!
Fangtooth is 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'.
