The International SeaKeepers was founded in 1998 by a small group of yacht owners who were horrified by the deteriorating conditions of the seas. Their initial mission was to develop a compact, automated and cost-effective ocean and atmospheric monitoring system to install aboard their yachts, providing data to scientists on the health of the world’s oceans. Our innovative SeaKeeper 1000™ is now deployed in more than 45 locations around the world, including yachts, cruise ships, ferry boats, buoys and piers.
The SeaKeeper 1000™ is endorsed by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization. NOAA and the U.S. National Weather Service continue to purchase the SeaKeeper 1000 for NOAA vessels, and are adding SeaKeeper's oceanographic monitoring to many of the government weather buoys moored at sea.
Members of the SeaKeepers Society recognize the ocean’s critical importance to the life of our planet and are deeply committed to finding real-world solutions to the problems now plaguing our seas. Our small, but very influential membership includes entrepreneurs, yachtsmen, corporations, divers, scientists and concerned citizens committed to this global effort to help protect, preserve and restore our world’s oceans.
