"We need to discover our past to wisely head into the future. We, like Christopher Columbus and Jacques Cousteau amongst others, have a burning desire to explore our world, to find answers and to live our life to the fullest."
Ocean Discovery is closely associated to the highly respected organisation Global Underwater Explorers, GUE, and cooperate in numerous projects around the world. These projects are supported by GUE training, diving logistics and administrative support. This European arm of GUE is dedicated to marine archaeological support, under water surveys and UW photography/filming.
The organisation's internationally recognised "Ocean Discovery Exploration Team" has been involved since 1999 in an unprecedented marine archaeological survey project of the south east Baltic Sea. Since 1999, the group has discovered over one hundred wrecks.
The team is also heavily involved in international diving projects and Ocean Discovery divers have had a leading role in two expeditions to the Titanic’s sister ship, HMHS Britannic, to a depth of one hundred and twenty meters. Ocean Discovery video from the expedition has been broadcast by National Geographic, BBC, History Channel and the Discovery Channel. In 2001 Ocean Discovery worked for BBC´s series "Journeys to the bottom of the sea" filming the M1 experimental submarine in the English channel.
The team has participated or led numerous successful projects since 1995. Ocean Discovery members also participate as speakers/presenters at many international seminars and events. Topics range from diving in general to archaeological explorations.
In 2012 Ocean Discovery's Richard Lundgren was elected fellow member of the prestigious Explorers Club. This is a tremendous appreciation of a life time of underwater exploration culminating with the discovery of the ship wreck Mars.
