Engineering for Tomorrow's Discoveries.

Welcome to the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE). We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the global underwater science community with the tools and expertise required to explore the greatest depths of the planet’s largest and deepest bodies of water, and return with stories of discovery to amaze and inspire a global audience.

Through a Memorandum of Understanding, GFOE and NOAA's Office of Ocean Exploration and Research work closely together to share fantastic ocean exploration discoveries with the world.
