TDI-Brooks Joins Blue Hole Belize Expedition

TDI-Brooks International has said it will soon deploy the research vessel Brooks McCall to Belize and join the Blue Hole Expedition.

The Blue Hole Belize expedition brings together Ocean Unite co-founder and Virgin Group founder Richard Branson; documentary filmmaker and ocean conservationist Fabien Cousteau (grandson of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau).

Roatan Institute of Deep Sea Exploration (RIDE) and Aquatica Submarines will send multiple submersibles to collect scientific data, including a complete sonar scan of the interior.

The RV Brooks McCall will provide the logistical support, hosting and launching of Aquatica’s manned submersible submarines along with providing accommodations for all crew and guests during the two-week expedition.

The Blue Hole is a 124-meters deep marine sinkhole, situated in the center of Lighthouse Reef off the coast of Belize. It is a part of the larger Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System which is a World Heritage Site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The expedition has also enlisted a team of scientists, explorers and filmmakers to share the mysteries that wait at the bottom of Belize’s Blue Hole.
