Human exploration in the undersea environment is a fabulous source of inspiration and indispensable research for precious knowledge of our oceans.
Driven by a pioneering spirit, the Under The Pole expeditions aim to push the limits of human undersea exploration through a bold approach and continuing innovation. Although past expeditions focused on the Arctic and brought the Under the Pole team international recognition for their expertise in polar diving, the next expedition, UTP III • 2017-2020, will be worldwide.
