egtmedia59Rich travel clients may soon be able to dive to unprecedented depths in the sea to find new species to name after themselves.

Luxury superyacht expedition EYOS Expeditions has partnered with Florida-based  Triton Submarines, a deal which the companies say will revolutionise the luxury super-yacht and private submarine industry.

A new generation of super-submarines, with ultra-strong hulls and space-age guidance systems, are already taking paying passengers to the deepest parts of the world’s oceans. Triton submarine exploring the deep

While not cheap, these trips are vastly less expensive than comparable tourist trips into sub-orbital space.

Triton says clients will now be able to reach the most remote and wild locations on the planet –and then dive over 1000 meters below the surface “on the most luxurious superyachts and submarines ever designed”.

“Combining the world’s foremost provider of superyacht expeditions with the world’s most sophisticated and advanced personal submarines is a natural fit. Together, we can offer some true, once-in-a-lifetime experiences in areas that were virtually inaccessible to yachts only a few years ago,” says EYOS Partner Rob McCallum.

The partnership will see the companies work together on yacht design, yacht charters and scientific expeditions. Working closely with yacht-owners (or charter clients), EYOS routinely guides vessels into pristine, seldom-visited areas by organising, planning, permitting and leading the expeditions.

“Triton’s ability to mobilise and operate a submersible virtually anywhere in the world will give clients the opportunity to explore undersea far beyond normal cruising grounds for much less than it costs to purchase a new submarine,” the company says.

As vice president of Marketing for Triton, Marc Deppe, puts it: “The most exciting aspect of these remote, deep dives is that we will be taking people to places that no human has gone before. There could be true discovery on every dive – whether exploring underwater hydrothermal vents in the South Pacific or going to underwater trenches in Antarctica, we might see something never before documented. This could be the perfect opportunity to discover a species and name it after yourself!”

McCallum adds, “Many yacht owners are looking into submersible technology not just for the private adventure and unique experiences a sub can provide, but because it leads to real exploration and a chance to make a direct contribution to marine science.”
