Need a Vessel for Your Research Project?

The International SeaKeepers Society is accepting research proposals for DISCOVERY Yacht expeditions. The SeaKeepers DISCOVERY Yacht Program provides marine scientists with a unique and cost-effective platform for at-sea research by placing researchers on privately owned vessels to conduct oceanographic research. SeaKeepers is committed to promoting ocean research, education, and conservation. We are looking for high-impact projects that support our missions, foster scientific collaboration, and stimulate further exploration.


Join Seabed 2030 Project: A Global Citizen Science Initiative

SeaKeepers has partnered with The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO in a collaborative program called Seabed 2030 Project. This initiative is coordinated to oversee the sourcing and compilation of bathymetric data to collect depth measurements from vessels using standard navigation instruments while engaged in routine maritime operations. To learn more about this project and how to get involved, please learn more below or fill out a DISCOVERY Yacht Application.

  • Educational Lesson Plans

    SeaKeepers works with marine educators and other non-profits to provide groups with local marine biology field trips, and also has online resources available for classes that are unable to travel. The goal of our resources is to provide fun, interesting ways to engage the next generation in environmental conservation.
