Seabed 2030 Project


ONE & ONLY, Lil Wine, Tahina, Pursuit, and Kemosabe
Nassau, Bahamas
Ongoing since February 2023

The International SeaKeepers Society is partnered with Seabed 2030 to crowdsource bathymetric data collection using data loggers that attach to the navigational instruments of privately owned vessels. Loggers were installed on five charter vessels from the 2023 Bahamas Charter Yacht Show. These vessels include ONE & ONLY, the tender for Brandi Wine, Lil Wine, Tahina, Pursuit, and Kemosabe.

Purpose of Research

The Nippon Foundation and GEBCO founded Seabed 2030 in 2017 to coordinate and oversee the sourcing and compilation of bathymetric data through its five data centers into the freely-available GEBCO Grid to produce a definitive map of the world ocean floor.

Duration of Project

Ongoing since February 2023


Only 20% of the ocean floor has been mapped to date. Mapping the seafloor can help us learn what resources are available on our planet and identify changes in currents that can indicate climate change. By understanding the shape of our ocean floor, we gain knowledge of geophysical drivers of ocean behavior.
