Eye on the Sanctuaries Tour

During the Eye on the Sanctuaries Tour OceanGate will embark on a series of submarine expeditions across the United States. During these planned expeditions to three coasts, the team of crew, sponsors, partners and experts will conduct dives to 500 meters (1640 feet), perform educational outreach, and host custom events for supporters, media, and the general public.

The expedition schedule includes opportunities for key sponsors to participate in submarine dives with the crew to:

  • Dive to the depths of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Observe the unique habitat of the Farallon Islands during the season when Great White sharks congregate
  • Survey the wrecks of German U-Boats and American vessels sunk during the Battle of the Atlantic
  • Explore the wreck of the USS Macon, a rare piece of aviation history

Eye on the Sanctuaries Tour

Flower Garden Banks

Situated 70 to 115 miles off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, the Flower Garden Banks sanctuary includes dives to view a rare coral spawning event, inspect a derelict oil drilling platform, and explore a deep sea canyon.

Greater Farallones Survey

Nested in one of the most diverse and bountiful marine environments in the world, the islands are located just a few miles from San Francisco within the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.

Battle of the Atlantic

The Battle of the Atlantic has been called the "longest, largest, and most complex" naval battle in history and resulted in hundreds of Allied ships and German U-boats sunk off the Atlantic coast of the United States.

USS Macon

The Macon’s story, the crew, the tragic crash, and its unique resting place, all tie in to an American vision of exploration, innovation and expansion.
