OUR VISION

We explore in search of inspiration. We explore to learn exactly what’s happening in our oceans. Underwater exploration is a potent tool in the quest for a sustainable planet.

citationghislainUnder The Pole expeditions endeavor to push the boundaries of underwater exploration. We have a bold, pioneering spirit and are relentlessly innovative and inventive in our approach. Our expeditions are recognized internationally for their expertise in polar diving. To date Under The Pole has brought together 150 teammates and 180 partner research institutes and companies. At the helm are myself and my wife, Emmanuelle Périé-Bardout. As a couple we have turned our passion for exploration into a career and a way of life.

 We have better maps of the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter than we do of our own ocean floor.
