Research Vessel SALA is prepping for an expedition into the Caribbean. Specifically, we are heading to Puerto Rico where we'll set up our base of operations.
Along the way, we'll still seek out targets, shoot lots of video, and post updates wherever we find a broadband connection. Our side-scan sonar will remain active, and we will deploy the underwater drone at the first
sign of anything interesting. We'll also explore as many "deserted" beachheads that we can access safely to video things like, what may have washed up to the high and storm tide lines.
Exciting underwater video will be captured with our deep diving Remote Underwater Video Drone. Don't miss the opportunity to see the footage and capture the excitement for yourself. To SUBSCRIBE to OAI's videos on YouTube, go here:
