The first ONC-led expedition for 2023 takes place onboard the Canadian Coast Guard Vessel John P. Tully from 12—19 March. Our team from ONC and ITB Subsea will maintain and install infrastructure and instrumentation at ONC’s VENUS observatory located off the east coast of Vancouver Island. ITB Subsea’s remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Oceanic Explorer will be diving to depths of up to 300 metres, recovering and deploying equipment that enables continuous, open-data to keep flowing from VENUS.
Join us on the live web stream as we visit the shallow VENUS locations in the Strait of Georgia and Saanich Inlet.
