The Inner Space Center is an innovative leader, advancing ocean science exploration, research, and education.


The Inner Space Center (ISC) uses cutting edge technology, including telepresence, for ocean research, exploration, and education. The ISC generates accessible portals for ocean research, expanding the capacity for scientists to engage in real-time mission operations, while inspiring the next generation of ocean explorers. The ISC brings the excitement of ocean discoveries to onshore audiences worldwide.

 At the Inner Space Center, we want to connect people with what's happening while the ships are exploring. All of the live dives are available to the public live on our website, free of charge, and optimized for desktop and mobile devices.

Highlights from the dives we support are also posted on our YouTube channel, and in some special cases we provide a Video-On-Demand service that allows people to watch archived dive footage almost immediately after the original broadcast. These services are invaluable for students, scientists, and researchers!

We also have Twitter and Facebook accounts that the public can follow to get updates whenever interesting science or exploration happens.

Our goal is to give the public the feeling of being part of the action, while being on shore.

Though exploration vessels are often docked during Winter, tours are available year-round!
