Digitizing the underwater heritage

We are a team of cave divers, historians, archeologists and 3d scanning experts. We bring the beauty and mystery of the submerged world to the broad audience.

Submerged mission

The big ‘WHAT’, 
‘WHO’, and ‘WHY’


We preserve, explore and document the underwater cultural heritage through the use of digital 3d scanning techniques. Our mission is to contribute to the understanding of maritime history and to protect the natural underwater environment. We participate in a range of international projects aiming to identify or find specific wrecks lying at the bottom of the sea. We also work on documenting the underwater caves that are probably the least accessible sites on Earth today.


We believe that the preservation and documentation of these underwater sites are crucial for future generations to learn from and appreciate the history and culture that they represent. With the use of cutting-edge technology and techniques, we aim to create accurate 3D models of these sites that can be used for research, education, and preservation purposes.


Our organization is made up of a team of professionals who are passionate about underwater exploration and documentation. We collaborate with experts in various fields, including archaeology, history, and cartography, to ensure that our work is accurate and meaningful.
