Utilizing a unique specialty in deep and technical research diving, the Cambrian Foundation collects data for environmental scientists, marine geologists and biologists, archaeologists, and historians, as well as local, state, and federal agencies in many corners of the world including deep offshore environments, shipwrecks, and submerged caves.


Interested in learning more about the underwater world? We offer presentations to classrooms and community groups, field workshops, internships, and expedition participation. Our unparalleled approach to hands-on education provides people of all ages with many different ways to become involved.


The Cambrian Foundation dive program incorporates a variety of tools for the research, recovery, survey, etc. work that we do underwater. These include open circuit, semi-closed rebreathers, and closed circuit rebreather systems.
