Video: Deep Dive In Bermuda’s Hidden Depths

September 11, 2016

Guardian environment reporter Oliver Milman recently joined Nekton on a deep sea dive expedition off the coast of Bermuda, with the scientists aboard aiming to “chart its hidden depths and gauge the general health of the area’s reef and coral.”

Nekton’s first deep ocean scientific research mission — sponsored by re/insurer XL Catlin and partnering with the Bermuda Government’s Ministry of the Environment — took place in July.

To explore the full impact of human activities on the deep ocean, that first in a series of expeditions used cutting-edge technology including the latest manned submersibles with fully spherical hulls and Virtual Reality 360-degree cameras.

The video description says, “Guardian environment reporter Oliver Milman joins a group of scientists on an underwater expedition off the Bermuda coast to help chart its hidden depths and gauge the general health of the area’s reef and coral.

“Travelling in a two-man submersible, Milman and submarine pilot Kelvin Magee go on a journey 500ft below the surface.”
